Waking up before the crack of dawn, with temperatures in the low teens and snow/ice everywhere is really not be idea of fun when it comes to heading out to run a 5k. But that was exactly what we did this morning! Mission = St Patty’s Day 5K in Appleton . This marks the first 5K run since the Packers Training Camp run last July. Matt and I were on the road bright and early… ok it was not really bright outside when we his the road, it was just early!
With with the training/conditioning that I have been doing in the last few months in they gym, I should not have been worried. My trainer has expressed his confidence that I am ready and will succeed. However, approaching that starting line was somewhat nerve wracking! Would I really be able to finish this? Would I be able to even come close to my 36 minute time that I was aiming for? Can I survive my first outside run this winter? Would I be able to keep up with Matt – considering he is quite a bit taller than me?
I know I can do this. I have done it before. This is just another run.
Any guesses on how long it will take for the lunges to thaw out?
