Phew~! Have been training on the treadmill all this while and finally went outdoors for my Zombies, Run! 5K Training “graduation run”. It felt great running outdoors – didn’t seem much harder than on the treadmill, except when I had to cross the Helix Bridge that was slightly inclined & ran into a flight of stairs. The evening was lovely, a little warm but not too much. Anyway these are my results!
Not too bad for a n00b, huh? Gotta admit though… I walked some parts of it & even stopped once to stretch out the pain. I did get some arch pain mid run but I ignored it and now my heel is feeling really really bruised. Ugh. I hope I’m not developing the dread plantar fasciitis – podiatrists are too expensive! Well… with the above, have earned my Hello Kitty Walk/Run medal. All I gotta do is wait for it to be posted to me. Would take a while, but hey, patience is a virtue!
Anyway, I totally enjoyed the walk back home after the run. Was slow & relaxed, and the best part was… looking the sky darken around me, and just enjoying the city lights.
Totally worth it.
