I simply have to SHARE~~!! Teehee.
I ran my first 5km without stopping last night, in about 38 minutes, at a speed of 8kph.
Before gym, it was about 945pm already.
Instead of doing brisk walking for the first 10 minutes, i started running slowly at about 7kph, and turning up to 8kph after a few minutes. As usual, the ‘adjustment period’ of about 15 minutes was the toughest to get by, but after that i was just on auto-cruise mode of non-stop running. I wasn’t really panting like a dog, but it was a ‘just nice’ pace and I felt great. I felt like i could go on and on 🙂
I used Nike Running app to record my runs, although it isn’t very accurate and i had to key in the actual distance ran as per my treadmill figures. The calories burnt was not accurate too.
After my run, I did 50 squats, 80 jumping jacks and 100 Pilates crunches. 🙂 Today is rest day for squats yay.
After the run i showered, and watched The Hippocratic Crush 2 with hubby – first episode! Sigh first episode already so depressing – pregnant Yu Zai (Tavia Yeung) gotta be isolated from Yat Kin (Kenneth Ma) coz of the virus 😦 I have to say that both Tavia and Kenneth are among my favourite TVB actors. Kevin Cheng is quite okay too. I find the rest not as good.
We slept at 1230am (so late!) and i overslept as a result. Was supposed to wake up at 445am but ended up waking at 545am!!
And i lost 0.9kg from yesterday morning to this morning. The 5km run helped me lose all my water retention? LOL.
More 5km runs then 🙂
