Distance - 1 mile or 1.609K

Time - 15.10

Pace - 15.13 min/mile


I run on the levee of the Tenn Tom Waterway in Fulton Mississippi.  Starting at the Peppertown boat ramp I do a warm up walk to Lock C and then run back to the boat ramp.  It is exactly 1 mile from gate to gate.  The surface is slag rock packed by vehicle tracks.  I wear Columbia Azuric trail running shoes.  They are entry level discontinued shoes I got from Sierra Trading Post for $30 but they are surprisingly comfortable and I feel they will do fine for the fairly soft surface I am running on.  I plan on going to the local outdoor store to get fitted, but am going to wait until I'm sure I will stick to this.  My running attire is a pair of polyester hiking shorts I got at the local thrift store with a cotton T-shirt and wool hiking socks.  Again, if I stick with this I'll upgrade to a running shorts and shirt and some quality running socks.  I'm running in the late afternoon right now, would love to run in the early morning but retirement has made me too lazy to get up.  Maybe that will change when I get back in a little better shape.  Only issue right now are the biting flies can be pesky, but a little bug spray will take care of that.

This will be a blog about my beginners training program getting ready for my first 5K run. I hope to compete in my first 5K by September of 2011.
