I'm excited to report that this morning I ran Kayla's Back to School Virtual 5K! Guys, I have been CRAVING a race lately. While this "race" didn't quite fulfill my race longing, it was a lot of fun! When I woke up today, I was SO HAPPY to find that our weird heat wave had been replaced with a glorious 60 degree morning. Is fall finally on its way???? Check out the cute race bib Kayla made for us! It's been too long since I had one of these babies pinned on my tummy!
Before I headed out the door, I had this yummy Chocolate #9 gel. Look for a full product review and giveaway sometime next weekend!
My final time was 34:14--pretty darn slow, although it didn't feel slow when I was running! Even though I've stayed active in the past month and a half since quitting my distance running/race training, I'm having to remind myself that it's OKAY and NORMAL that I've slowed down a bit. I will get back where I was, slowly but surely. :) All in all, it was a fun run! Afterwards my legs were tired! I spent some time laying with them up a wall like this...
and took a little nap here:
(Confession: I slept on the couch last night...my bed was just TOO FAR AWAY.)
Then, I started looking for upcoming 5K races to fill my fall calendar with! I registered for a 5K for the weekend after next and am hoping to beat today's time. I think I can do it. :) Wanna know a secret? My dream fall goal is a sub-30 minute 5K...idk if that's possible for me yet since I'm still recovering, but I'm sure going to try!
What have you been up to this weekend?
