Couch to 5K: Week 7, Day 2

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Physically I am starting to feel it. My ankle is feeling the stress and I have had to ice it a bit more frequently.

My IT band on the same knee is noticing it too..I iced it and stretched it lots the last two runs. Today I had to ice my other knee...the knee cap more precisely.
I know my gait is off from the ankle so that doesn't help matters much...I shall watch that and pay more attention to that on future runs, especially when I want to run 10km in the near future.

My run started off a bit slow today as I started with kids in tow.

I told them that they had to at least try to train a couple of times prior to running the family 1km run in October. I know it's only 1k, however my 10 year old isn't a runner, nor does she partake in running sports. Well she plays soccer, but she's a goalie so she really doesn't run.

I stayed with her in order to help track her pace. My son did his own thing, I just timed him and recorded his distance. He took off in spurts afterwards, but I didn't track that.

Once they finished their portion of the run I simply kept going and ran my own thing.

Today's Stats:

Distance= 3.87
Time= 25 minutes (this doesn't include warm up or cool down, I got it staright this time!)
Pace= 6.29/km
Calories= 333

Reily's Stats:
Distance= 1.5km
Time= 7.58
Pace= 5.18/km

Payton's Stats:
Distance= 1km
Time= 6.19
Pace= 6.19/km

Later Sparkers!!!

    Awesome that your kids are running right along with you, and that you are so aware of their requirements to stay uninjured while running. You are a SUPERMOM!
