“Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it”– Oprah Winfrey
The afternoon run of the 27th of October was my 19th training run, the last run of the fifth week! (Week 5: Oct. 21th-Oct. 27th)
19 runs in, 5 weeks down, 20 weeks to go and I’ll be running the Saturday Rock N’ Roll Marathon in Washington, DC.
Week 5 Statistics!
- 30:01.00 minutes
- 8:18 /mile
- 3.61 miles
Notable week 5 achievements:
- This week was run by myself – and two of the runs I took a different route. Instead of going the hilly route down by Trump National golf course, I instead went out to Algonkian parkway, and just ran to see how far 15 minutes out took me. Without the hills, my pace was considerably improved (almost breaking below 8min/mile). As a friend reminded me though, i’m training for the long run, not the short sprint.
