Track 5k in ~33:20. A few minutes better than last time. I’m thinking I need to stick with the track until I get my muscle back and my knee gets back to 100%.
You know you’re addicted when…
My road bike has been in the shop for 2 days (rear derailleur tune after installing a new cassette AND install of new SRAM Force brake kits) and I’m already going through withdrawal.
I even ran last night because I couldn’t bike. Now my body hates me.
Good news is my bike is ready and I’ll be back out there training this evening. Hopefully I’ll make it to 5pm…
After the Do Life 5k yesterday, I went to my monthly volunteer event I coordinate with the local Ronald McDonald House. We cook a big dinner for the families that are staying at the House while they endure the struggles of their child receiving medical attention at UCSF.
It’s odd - experiencing such a high of the morning from focusing on myself/my health, then facing others who are living their life for the health of someone else, it makes you truly value health, your well-being and the health of your loved ones.
We’re all on a journey. Whether it’s long and arduous or merely a hobby, make sure you stop for a moment to value that fact that you CAN focus on your health.
I’m getting excited for the Do Life 5k on Sunday! These guys have been such an inspiration for me over the past year so it will be fun to meet them (and my other west coast tumblr folks) for a good walk/jog/run.
I wish I was doing the Vineman next Saturday with them, but the 5k will work just as well.
Hope to see some of you there!
Was going to bike into work this morning…
But then remembered how big today’s Tour de France stage is. Bowl of cereal and laptop for the morning…check.
Run this afternoon instead, hopefully I don’t melt.
A few months before I tore my ACL, I registered for my first half marathon to take place July 2011. It was depressing to pull out of the smaller races/sprint tri events but I knew I’d be back at it soon enough.
Fast forward to this morning. The half marathon folks put on a last minute 5k. Considering I ran for 5 min in total since January, I was a bit worried but took the plunge.
I made it through the 5k and my knee, although a bit sore, feels great.
Here’s to doing life this weekend! I hope everyone who’s racing today rocks it hard and finishes with a smile on your face!
