~ Dave Declares War on Hills ~
Today, I finally got up the nerve to try the hilly 5K course that is run in my neighborhood. I started the course somewhere in the middle, but faithfully followed it all the way around. I learned that getting up a hill is one thing, but once that's accomplished my body is like "whew, let's take a breather!" I listened to my body with abject tenderness and infinite love, and then politely told it to shut up and keep jogging.
I'm really proud about a number of things that happened in this run:
1.) Run time: 43:10 **new PR **
2.) Run distance: 3.41 miles ** new PR **
3.) Realistic 5K course ** first time ever **
4.) Heart Rate: Always in Zone 4 (proof I can recover and jog at the same time!!!)
Today I used body glide for the first time, and it worked. In fact, I discovered another place I could use it in the future. But, no need to bore anyone with those details. Below is all the charts and graphs from the run.
