It feels like it will be a year before I can do a 5K in 22:30 on level ground. Right now, I can't even imagine running 3.1 miles at 7:16/mi pace. I ran a mile off the record earlier. The hardest part of running for me is the first part. It takes a while to get warmed up and to be able to breath right. 54 year old body wants to be stiff and reluctant to do anything. I had to take two days off after that mountain run I did on Monday. Monday was a 7.2 mile trek with a 5 mile workout and some ridiculously steep climbing. That kicked my butt. My left hip and ham were really complaining. They did fine today thank goodness. I should be good to go for the 5K Saturday.
