The Pumpkin Daddy showed me how to map my distance on Google Map, and I figured out that I was running something like 3.4 km in 30 minutes. I mapped out a 5 km run and tried it on Sunday morning. It took about 50 minutes and wore me out quite a bit, but I thought it was easier than expected.
The pain hit me Monday afternoon, and it took until Tuesday evening for my body to completely forgive me.
I did the 3.4 km run on Wednesday morning, and that didn't hurt me at all. This is of note because when I first started running at the beginning of the year, I was in constant pain. This was when the runs consisted of something like 12 minutes of running with 12 minutes of walking, so I'm definitely getting stronger.
I made out a Golden Week "to do" list that includes gardening (buying and planting annuals in our flower bed), sewing (I found jeans at a budget clothing store, and I really like the fabric. They're better than my beloved Uniqlo! I want to take them in at the waist and add an embroidered patch to a back pocket. Customized jeans, just like the Hollywood celebs have!), and also some running (5 km at least twice) and reading (working through the book that I started during…the New Year Holiday I think ^^;)
