Tackle The Miles Virtual 5k

4 Feb

As part of my 13 in 2013 goal which is part of the larger 13 in 2013 group, I ran my third race of the year today. It was a virtual one, done in the basement, at 6am, on the good ol’ treadmill.

It was pretty anti-climatic as far as races go, but I did push myself pretty hard which felt great! I’ve gotta say, this whole  virtual race phenomenon is a great way to get yourself to push yourself a little bit harder.

I meant to grab a picture of the treadmill stats at the end and completely forgot. Buuut, here are my splits.

3 minute walking warm up
Mile 1 – 14:16 (easy)
Mile 2 – 11:58 (5k pace)
Mile 3 – 13:35 (easy)

Overall: 3 miles in 39:51.

    Good job. I will be doing my #tacklethemiles on Thursday and hate the idea of having to do it on a treadmill
