Back on the Road

After a week off, I got out this evening for an easy 5K - figured I could use it for my WWFoR 5K race time.

Running 2 min and walking 1 min with my husband, we covered the 3.1 miles in 35:03. Not bad for all that walking!

I feel ok but a bit sore - will need to keep ice and ibuprofen handy.

Congrats to all those who ran today's Chicago Marathon! Tough race with temps getting into the low 80's. I am looking forward to reading the race reports.

Good job on your WWFoR 5K! Hope that pain in the butt is getting better.

Good job Chris. Sorry about your pain in the butt! Hope the injury heals.

Nice time for a run-walk Chris? Hope your bum is feeling better? I know this may sound ridiculous but are you massaging it? I was given "TheStick" to trial and I've been using it on my hips and behind as well and it's good!
