I want to preface this by saying I'm not a runner and I hate running with my whole body, even my pee pee.
Tonight I ran about 4 miles, in preparation for a 5K. In early September I couldn't match the pace I set today for a single mile.
I ran my first 5K (actually I think the course was a little short) on Oct. 1 and finished 28:10. Horrible. Today I did 4 miles in a hair over 8:00 pace.
Sunday I run my 5K, shooting for a PR of 24:00. Friday I will attempt to pull 405 for a new deadlift PR as well.
Between Hoglover's triathlon pics, DJ's comment on Prime Time a while back that athletes should be able to run 5K's if pressed and my speedy runner roomate, I have all kinds of motivation for the run. I hope to have affirmatives for both my goals for y'all Sunday night...
