“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”

SparkPeople Virtual 5K!

 I have a lot to blog about, but it's late and wanted to do my recap really quick on my virtual race today.  I did my SparkPeople Virtual 5K today and set a new PR!!


RACE: SparkPeople Virtual 5K

WHERE:  Glenwood Track in WM

TIME: 30:23! *PR*

AVG PACE: 9:46 (And a pace under 10:00?!?  So excited!) 

GEAR:  Tank, capri workout pants, gatorade, ipod

HOW IT WENT:  The first mile I went too strong and regretted it during my 2nd mile..my sinuses started acting up and I was getting tired too soon.  (And  the people mowing around the track didn't help either.  Grass was flying everywhere and I inhaled a good bit! EEK!) I had to stop once to tie my shoes... NEVER happens... and one short water stop.  I was surprised that I made it in 30:23 when it was all over and done.  The 3rd mile was tough, but I kept up my pace.  After it was over, I went and hacked up my lungs.  Thanks mowing crew at the Wellness Center! :)

And so close to my goal of 30:00!  Maybe the next one will be that or right under? :)

So excited about this run today... I think I am going to hit up some zumba tomorrow.  I am not doing great with my April goal of doing my Jillian video.  I am avoiding it at all costs it seems!  I just have such weak arms and core!  I need some motivation PLEASE!!  Oh, and then I look at those bat-wings and THAT muffin top... hee hee! 

Wanted to end tonight with a picture of some of my faves... The little baby is my little friend, Maddox :) and the girl on the right is my sweet sister :)  I frickin' love these kids!

Every time Maddox sees me he says "Bo, I can play with your feet?"  (They call me Bo, short for Kimbo.)  He has some obsession with feet and it is too funny! He will take off my socks and just start rubbing them... I don't know if I would touch those runner's feet little man!  Ha ha!
