W5D2 and Adventures with Riley
Friday, November 04, 2011
I did W5D2 of the 5k training yesterday. Lots of pain and lots of huffing, but I got it done. I iced my leg then put Bengay on it after I took a shower. I wasn't about to attempt Day 3 today after how it went last night. This week may need a do-over. We'll see when I do Day 3 tomorrow. I can't afford many do-overs since I have only 5 weeks until my 5k!
Today I felt like getting outside with Riley. It's cooled down another 10 degrees so I decided we'd walk our 5k route. I started it that way, then made a detour. I've seen this area of town through passing in the car, but never by foot. I got some strange looks since I was walking my dog along one of the busiest streets in town. But I got to see a few shops that looked cool and I window shopped a few places as I passed. By the time we were finished, we'd been gone for 90 minutes and went 4.5 miles. Oh well. More than I meant to do, but my legs feel less stiff and Riley's sacked out on the couch.
Another personal victory - I got Dylan to eat breakfast!
