So, ran in the Peapod Half Madness 10K in Batavia, IL, on Sunday, Sept. 5, 2010. Time: 63 minutes, 31 seconds. Great effort given this was my first 10K in about 20 years (!!). I surprised myself, I thought I'd be bringing it in in about 72 to 75 minutes. 63 minutes is very good.
Yesterday I jogged/walked 13 miles, basically a half marathon. I felt good yesterday, and I feel good today (didn't run today). I think that if I keep it up and don't have any lapses in training, I should be able to do my next 10K in UNDER 60 minutes. I think that my speed will get better with more mileage and losing a few more pounds. My legs, etc., all feel great, even given the 13 miles I covered yesterday. I think that's pretty good!
Next year, I'll be thinking seriously about running in half marathons. I think that if I can lose a few more pounds, I will speed up A LOT.
Stay tuned! John V. Karavitis, John Karavitis, Karavitis, KC9ISD, Amazon, YouTube, MySpace, Twitter, BigSight, etc.
