It was a fun way to spend an hour of my Saturday, especially because I've been feeling lousy since Wednesday. I woke up with a nasty headache, I don't get them often, but for three days I felt like my head was filled with cotton, and a knife was stuck in my left temple. I did everything I could think of to get rid of it, advil, coffee, a smoothie, an ice pack, I even drank some nuun. I finally kicked it this morning, Mike let me sleep in until 10:30! I musty have really needed it, maybe it was residual holiday exhaustion.
Anyway, I had signed up for Pam from Thirty Schmirty's "It's M'Burfday" Virtual 5k. And since it was on the same day, I figured I would do Adam from I am Boring's Freeze Your Thorns Off Virtual 5k as well. Adam's race was fitting, since it was in the 20's today, but Mike had to go help a friend of ours move, so I had to run on the treadmill. So I got the kids settled with Despicable Me on DVD, and got moving.
Since I read about Pam's race first, I decided to run hers first. I ran a pretty easy pace, but kept changing up the inclines to keep it interesting while I channel surfed. Here are the results:
Then I cleared out the numbers, and got going on race number two.
This time around, I decided to change up my speed. I found Places in the Heart on cable, and started watching that. For all you LOST fans, I noticed John Locke is in this movie, he was about 26 years younger, with dark hair, and I almost didn't recognize him.
Results for 5k number two:
I think it's interesting how I ran differently in each race, but I burned the same amount of calories.
I felt really good when I finished, and so far the headache has stayed away.
Thanks Pam! Thanks Adam!
