Yay … my first unofficial 5k. And, a week earlier than expected.
On Saturday, 11/6, I planned a ‘long run’ (running/walking) of 4.5 miles. I planned to run the first 2.75 miles straight without walking as I felt ‘trained up’ for that distance thanks to the C25K program.
I passed the 2.75 mile mark and felt strong so I thought I would continue to 3 miles. Once I got to 3 miles I felt enough energy to make it to 5K.
Yay. 5K. 3.2 miles.
My time for the 5K was 33:11. My pace was 10:41. Yay! Not too bad.
I started intervals of running and walking after the 5K distance and ended at 4.5 total miles. The time for the 4.5 miles was 49:55 for a 11:02 pace. According to the Nike+ app, the elevation gain was 199 ft and the calorie burn was 575.
