I signed up for a virtual Fun Run last week and decided today was going to be the day to run it.
I even printed out a bib and wore it for the run…I had some interesting looks, especially from the cyclists that passed me who could actually read it.
I haven’t run since Sunday when I did the GutBuster and that was probably a very wise choice given how my quads felt after that race
I started out with a great line up of tunes on my IPod and a happy attitude. My husband made fun of me light-hearted of course…(right? It was light-hearted right?) for wearing the bib but I really wanted to get in the spirit of things and feel like I was in a ‘real’ race. I coerced said husband into driving down to the ocean to take a couple of action shots and to drive me home when I finished. I even set a timer to go off 25 minutes after I left the house so he would get there as I was finishing…;).
The run turned out to be my best 5K thus far…I PR’d I ran a time of 30:41 my fastest so far and closer to my goal of sub 30 minutes.
I felt awesome during the entire 5K and my pace obviously increased a bit. I am very happy with my results. Now I am thinking I will do the 10K run on Sunday…hmmmm, maybe I could PR that too!
This virtual 5K and/or 10K run is ongoing until June 25/12 so you still have time to participate. Go to :
http://networkedblogs.com/yToHI to sign up! If you sign up from my blog post, please tell Toni you heard about the run from www.FitPsychology.com. There are great prizes to be won too! I have my fingers crossed.
I will definitely participate in other virtual runs in the future. Maybe I can convince my fellow runners in town to run with me.
have you ever run a virtual run?
will you sign up for this virtual run?
