Virtul 5k Today!

Runs for Cookies Virtual 5K
Today I'm running/walking in Runs for Cookies Virtual 5k. Katie's husband made cute race bib, I added my name. Katie hand made many of the prizes, which is so awesome, they are all so cute! I'm going to do the best I can during the race. Since I've been inactive for so long I really don't know what my pace will be. I just want to do it to get my 5K mojo going. I plan to do a few this year.

Last night I did an easy paced walk/run. It was supposed to be day 2 of the C25K program but I didn't want to over do the training the day before the 5k. I completed 1.80 miles in 35:32 min a 19:44 min mile. I only ran about 5 minute intervals total. My achilles tendon in my left leg has been really tight, it slowed me down a bit cos my leg/ankle started hurting. I just did a fast walk to finish out the half hour.

This time includes the warm up & cool down, do people usually include that in the total time?


  1. Good luck:)

  2. :) hey hope it went well. I know zero about running, so I have no clue if warm-up and cool down counts or not.
    What was your time?

    1. I finished 00:53:10!! I did a 5 min warm up then started counting. then stopped & did cool down. so i actually worked out 63 min yesterday! i'm feeling it in my legs a bit today not too bad tho!
