Renewed running interest

Posted by Forlanda Dec 2, 2009

Over the last month, I've been trying to get back into a routine running schedule that would eventually get me to a point of being able to run 3-miles per day.  I started about 3 weeks ago when I ran a 5K route that took me over 35 minutes to do.  On top of that, two days later, my quads were sore!  However, I managed to put in another 5K run before the week was over.  Then on Thanksgiving day, I ran the Stockton "Run against Hunger" race.  The first 5K was not bad, but the second 5K was painful.  In the end, I was able to run at about a 9 minute mile pace--completing the 10K in about 56 minutes.  The feeling of accomplishment was great!

This is an account of my renewed interest in running, including my goal to reach a running pace of sub 8 minutes per mile in a 5K or 10K race. I plan on also someday competing in the New York Marathon.
