10K: Week 1, Day 2

I haven't run outside or for a distance since I ran the 5K. I have been working out regularly including cardio (walking on the treadmill, biking, or the stairmaster). So I wasn't too worried about running for that distance today. I was, however, worried about any hills I would encounter. I knew the route I would include a few slight hills. I decided to forge on.

I did the 2.5 miles in just under 22 minutes. Not bad, I think for someone who hasn't run a distance in a while. Going uphill was slow, but I was able to pick up my pace downhill or on the flat stretches.

I did about 15 minutes of stretches afterward. I am really sore from yesterday's strength training. Those lunges do it every time!
