Running Days – October 20 and 23, 2006

Friday, October 20, 2006

I went for a two-mile run. I did the first mile in 9 minutes 7 seconds and the second mile in 10 minutes 40 seconds. My total time was 19 minutes 47 seconds. A little slow, but I’ve been a little too busy to run more often.

I went for a 5 km run. Actually the route is 5.7 km, but that’s okay. I managed to run the whole distance. 😀 I was quite tired when I got back, but content. I think if I do a few more two-mile runs next week, I should be fine for the 10k run. I’m just glad I’m not testing this time. It’s good for me to keep up the running though, because I’ll have to do it anyway for my next dan.

My time for the 5.7 km was 40 minutes 28 seconds. It’s slower than my time in the summer, but I think comparable to how I ran the 10k. I think I could have ran more even though I was a little tired. Not sure if I can run the whole 10k yet, but I’ll try to run as much as I can again and see how I feel. Like I said before, it hurts to stop running once you’ve covered around 5 km.

This past weekend was busy. This weekend will be the start of a busy two weeks and I still have much work to do. *sigh* Sometimes I wish there was two of me so I could get more stuff done, but they say be careful what you wish for. Hehe.
