A couple of weeks ago I ran 8 miles in about 1 1/2 hr. This mornig I worked on my speed and ran a mile in 9:24. Not great by any means, but a big improvement for me. I'd like to drop another 20-30 lb. and maintain that weight.
I also registered for the Redlegs Run 5K in June. Anyone else here participating?
Don't kid yourself Eric. Those are great times for someone who's running for the first time(or at least first time in a long time.)
I've mentioned before but I have found a rhythm which works for me where I run for 3 minutes, then walk for 1, then run for 3 and so on. This helps me go longer distances, I ran the Columbus Marathon last October doing this.
When is the Redlegs Run 5K? I'm running a half marathon towards the end of May, and a full marathon probably in November, so the end of June would be a good time for me to do a 5K.
