My friend Annie and I have been training together on Mondays for the River Bank 5K, last night we decided to run the whole time instead of interval train so I could get a feel for what a sustainable pace was and she didn't have to walk on her hurting shins (running actually feels better on them than walking). So...we set out w/ a 2mi. goal and started at a 10 1/2 min. pace...it felt SO slow at first...but by the end we had slowed to between 11 and 11 1/2 min. pace and it no longer felt slow!! It was so hard...but in the end we did it and it felt GREAT! We burned 200 calories...which isn't much really...but it kicked me back into the reality that those jelly beans and cheesecake can add up SO easily and quickly...but to counter it is so NOT easy nor quick! So starts my journey of tracking better...
