Another race in the books! Now, this ended up by far my fastest 5k... but it ended up my most challenging and rewarding 5k I've done yet. I decided yesterday that I was going to run intervals through this 5k, I wanted to do simple ones and give myself enough time to recover so I wouldn't burn out. It worked really well! I did a one lap warm up walk, then dove right into 30 sec run x 3 min walk interval, then walked the last 4-5 min (though I did run to the door). To be able to run throughout a 5k was the biggest reward. My goal was to run in this race and I did just that!
Another upside to adding some running is that I burned around 805 calories, score! That was around 14 cal per minute, not bad! I have a race next Saturday I'm doing, it's the Kiss Me I'm a Runner 5k (I have a shirt to wear too!) and I plan to do the same intervals again to see how I do.
