The goal was to run a 5K a month as long as I could. In January I couldn't find an official 5K, so I met up with Julie and her daughter yesterday to run our Unoffical 5K for Starbucks. We originally were going to run for Froyo, but it was 35 degrees out. I wasn't sure how to dress as I usually would run on my treadmill at this temp. I opted for a new pair of leggings I received for Christmas (bad idea, caused a little chaffing), my run for cupcakes shirt, a vest, gloves, bondiband to cover the ears and a hat. I ended up being the perfect temp.
Alli had mapped out a loop around their neighborhood and the goal was to run it three times. The first mile, Alli had her fastest mile, we slowed a little for the second and third mile but we were able to help her obtain a PR! Might not be official, but she completed the distance and refused to stop until her Garmin said 3.1! I am proud that she pushed through.
Afterwards we heading to Starbucks to pick up something to warm us up! It was a great way to end a fun little run.
I felt great most of the run. There was small down hill on each loop, that made my belly feel strange but I didn't think anything of it. That is until I got out of my car at home. I had a pain in my lower stomach. Something I later figured out is round ligament pain. I never thought I would lounge around so much after a 5K, but my body really needed it this time. I hope I am able to keep this pain in check and continue running/walking for a while longer.
How was your weekend?
