First 10k event recap

HI!!!

Today I did my first 10k event.

It was an amazing experience running with 4,200 women. I was so nervous and excited to achieve this goal that I couldn’t sleep well but when I woke up my energy was 100%.  I’m so glad that with a short time to train I put myself the goal of doing it and I accomplished it with a best personal record [PR =personal record of -5min and 9 seconds].

My October Miles 2017

Hi!

October was a slow training month. After been active 5 months training for the 5k event I did. I have a post with the recap if you want to know a little bit more about my second 5k this year (Click Here). I lower the miles and days to run during this month, but in general was a good month in the training area.

I ran a total of 12.14 miles in 9 runs.

I was supposed to train more for a 5k I want to participate during the month of November but I change my mind and I take it easy. My goal for October 5k was running without stopping thing that I achieve but It wasn’t the same goal for the November event so I just want to enjoy it and maybe accomplish a better time. Let’s see what happen!

 

About my October Goals: (Click Here to see the goals post of October 2017)

I kept training and I going to keep running. It doesn’t matter if I had an event or not. I had drunk more water but I can’t avoid those coca cola days.  I try to workout my core more but it was a little bit during this month. Yes I stretch more during this month It help me a lot with my lower back pain and in general with the runs. The part of stress less and incorporate meditation it work but I may need to improve it.

June 24, 2013. The race today felt great!!

Hi!

Today was a good day. The race today felt great. My mood is happy so I think it influenced.

I notice since I modify the day I don’t run, I feel like my body has more resistance. So I do workout at home, with my 2/ 10pound weights.

What I do?

  • Basic stretch
  • 25 sit ups (military style)
  • 5 push up
  • 30sec plank
  • 3 sets – 10pounds weight – 15 repetitions (biceps and triceps)
  • 3 sets of 20 repetitions (squats)
  • 2 sets of 20 repetitions (Donkey kick) per leg
  • 2 sets of 20 rept. (Front lunges)
  • 2 sets of 20 rept. (Side lunges)
  • 20 rept. (Hip Brigde)
  • 20 rept. (Overhead arm clap)

Now for Today June 24, 2013. #RUN

  • Distance: 2.00miles
  • Time: 23:53min
  • Pace: 11’54″/mi
  • Calories burn 249
  • Temp: 73 degrees F.

Let me tell you today I feel like a winner. I’m so happy that was felt good to run today. While running the wind felt like a good helper to my breathing, and in no time I had a problem with it. A good news for today’s run is that I do not stop at any time to take a few steps, and that’s Amazing!

Note: Today I finally pass to orange level on my Nike + running app.
