pcrrs {resolution run 5k}

11 Feb

I posted a while ago about participating in a road race series, the Portsmouth Community Road Race Series, that has 5k runs all around Portsmouth. The first run was the Resolution 5k on January 1. It was a good way to start the year. I was a little behind on my running so I didn’t do that great. It was cold and I didn’t run the entire thing. I walked a few times at about a minute each time. I know my race times can only get better from there. 

We ran it with our friend Renee. Our friend Hillary was also supposed to run the race but she hurt her leg snowboarding the week before, so she just took pictures.

I carried her number in my pocket….which is kind of cheating but we were ok with that. And she was ok with the fact that she wouldn’t get a very good time.

We were all bundled up and ready to go on the cold but sunny morning.

I was exhausted after the run. And my leg was really hurting. But I was proud of my time and I know I will get better throughout the year. Renee and Dan both finished before I did so they were waiting for me at the finish line.

The next race in the series is towards the end of April so I have plenty of time to get better again. I’m starting a new running plan this week. I’m doing a 5k plan first to get myself back up to where I was and then I will do a 10k plan to try and get my runs longer. I would love to be able to run 4 or 5 miles as a regular run.

I definitely haven’t been running as much as I was hoping so far this year. My running goal isn’t going so well but I’m hoping this plan will get me back on track.
