Beautiful day today so decided to check out my local Parkrun (after all the runners had gone home) just to get an idea of what 5K distance was like. The markers were still there so off we went walking briskly. Just in case you did not hear, I said "walking" not running. Well, 5K is HUGE... huge, huge, huge. It took us 52 minutes and 44 seconds.. My hips are still sore. How my legs can still be attached there I don't know. There is no way I could run this. Impossible. It is no way near what I do with Laura. Me think it will take me a couple of years to do this. Actually, I feel deflated. I mean, I am 68, I have short legs, I am not sporty anymore, I just don't stand a chance.
Something for sure, I will have tomorrow as a rest day to rest from this 5K walk 👿👿👿
Starting week 7 on Monday. It is more my league.
