November was a rough fitness month for me. I was out a week with a cold. And another week I was out with a back injury. Then…THANKSGIVING! I was glad that I found myself in good health in time to enjoy the holiday with my family.
Thanksgiving day my friend Nani convinced me that I should do the “Run To Feed The Hungry”. It was a good day, the weather was not extremely cold and the crowd was not to bad. I chose to do the 10k race while Nani did the 5k. Not going to lie, that was a bit frustrating for me. I thought we were both going to do the 10k together. Either way, I did what I set out to do and I was happy with that. It was not the greatest race ran, in fact, that day I forgot my watch. YIKES! And as a new runner, I really rely on my watch so that I don’t run to fast/slow. Well I ran REALLY fast, faster than I should have. I finished the first 3 miles in about 30 minutes…and the last 3 miles I was totally gassed! It took me about 14 minutes a mile the last 3! OUCH! Either way, I am thankful for my health and that I was able to run the race!
