I completed the Polar Dash today
Yay me! It went well, I even sped up so that I wasn't the last to finish amongst the 5kers! There were some that were running/walking 10K and/or a 1/2 marathon so I of course finished before them... at least;-)
I'm also using this 5K to fulfill the virtual New Year's 5K
I feel like it's cheating a little using a walk I was already doing but it works until I get more in shape for these walks:-)
I walked this 5K. I hope to run in the future once I get some training in but for now I'm walking and that's miles in towards my 650 mile goal along with exercise for calories to be burned so SCORE! I finished this walk in under an hour and wasn't last so I made my goal there also.
I finished in 54 minutes, burned about 525 calories, walked 5K of course and my pedometer said that was 3.6 miles... there was a little extra walking to & from the car & such:-) That also ended up in 8658 steps, give or take again for the little extra walking. I end with this final picture of my Polar Dash number and finisher's award....
Now it's time to hit Brad Gansberg's running program so that I can be ready to run some of them that I have planned for the year!
