I ran my 5K on Saturday, and we forgot our camera so we don't have any pictures. Sorry.
There was a large number of people there, even with the bad weather. It was different running in the rain. Jenn said she enjoyed it. I am frustrated with myself. I did it again and started way too fast. I tried to run with my friend, Bill, and that was nowhere near the pace I train at, and I started getting winded way too early. Then, my knee started bothering me, and I had to walk. I finished in 42:57, which was not as good as last time.
Jenn got third again! She is amazing. There was a large group of people, and she was able to get a new PR as well. We really think she has a hidden talent she never knew she had.
I think it's time to refocus and start getting serious again. I am going to start swimming and biking for the next two weeks. This way I will be able to do some rehab on my knees, and I will still be able to really increase my aerobic capacity and lose weight. I will also be training for a triathlon sprint distance. Kill two birds with one stone!
I also need write down my goals and make a weekly plan. I slept in this morning and only got a 20 minute workout. It was easier to be on time or early when my brother was coming. Now, I need to write out goals and work towards them.
I also need to refocus on my food choices. I have had a really bad 2-3 weeks when it comes to food. I have gained weight, and it is frustrating. I have just wanted to quit, but I know that isn't an option, and I need to refocus and keep working hard.
