Friday Evening Run by the Bay

Looking at my overall time and my splits, last Friday’s run was quite the disappointment =( My left knee started hurting right off the bat – probably due to sitting down and pretty much unmoving @ a desk the entire work day (I always ache all over by midday… my back, my knee, my foot… etc.), but I pushed on and it did get better quite quickly. However, I was unable to keep a good constant pace and was forced to take a walk about the 3km mark. /sigh My pace did pick u a little after the walk break, but unfortunately it dipped again quite quickly. Guess the heat earlier in the evening kinda got to me afterall ~ lol yeah, excuses much eh?

I do understand that some people incorporate walk breaks into their running. While I agree that it’s a great idea and that I’ll definitely do the same, should I start training for a 10k or longer, I honestly think that 5k is too short a distance to be applying that method. Took a look at the run-walk-run ratio on Jeff Galloway’s website. 8kph converts to like 12min/mi so based on the suggestion, I will be doing a 2min run/1min walk – a little too much walking, if you ask me. That being said, I’m open to giving it a try o(^_^)o

Some things never change though. Once again, I was playing Zombies, Run! and I’ll be counting this into my Heroes in a Half Shell Challenge VR which currently stands at…

Half Shell Challenge Donatello: 10.23/21.10

And the best part of dragging myself out for an evening run?  Sunset by the bay never disappoints.

PS. Haven’t been updating much these days cos I’m totally addicted to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Been “mugging” since Early Access on 24 Aug and I don’t see myself slowing down for the next week or two. Pretty sure that translates to little or no exercise hours clocked but whatever, my brain needs the workout too and I haven’t been this hyped for a while already! \(^_^)/
