The Jogging Clydesdale, I agreed to do a 5K this weekend, eventhough we live far apart from each other. Though I used to be somewhat comfortable with this distance, I haven't run 3.1 miles since early April and was not planning on doing this distance until I had built up to it a bit.
But several "tough love" mentors like Patrick Mahoney, RockStar Tri, Super Kate, SusieTri, Caratunk Girl and Kovas have passed on some wisdom that it is better to be aggressive when it comes to these personal challenges. I tend to be more cautious, which has no doubt limited me in my past when it comes to athletics.
Nonetheless, I went for it and was able to run the entire time and was very pleased with my time.
And at the end, I enjoyed a great local brown ale from Nimbus Brewery. Smooth and frothy!
What's on your weekend schedule?
