After feeling a little off and very tired for the past few days, I’m proud to announce that I did in fact run 5 miles today. Against strong headwinds half of the time. It was quite chilly out there today, and the last 2.5 miles were very tough, but I’m so proud that I finished this run.
- Distance: 5.0 miles (8,0 km)
- Time: 58:00 minutes
- Average pace: 11:35 min/mile
- Feeling: Breezy
Not that bad for my current fitness level, I’d say. I’ve just noticed that my average pace has been very consistent lately, that’s interesting. My legs are totally shot right now, I’ll probably pay for that run tomorrow.
Speaking of fitness, on Wednesday night I went to my very first Zumba class! Yes, my little village has finally discovered the trend and is now offering a few classes. As it is technically a beginners’ class, I expected it to start slowly. Boy, was I wrong! While most of the moves were relatively easy to follow, I was gasping for air and sweating buckets within minutes! Our instructor is just plain nuts. He’s a professional dance instructor by day, and I’ve never ever seen a guy moving his hips like that. Crazy!
That class was definitely a great cardio workout, but it actually wasn’t the big, fat party that I had expected. Oh well, maybe it’s just me. I’m very shy. Let’s see what the next few Wednesdays will bring.
On that note, happy weekend!
