So one of my goals is to become a runner. I’ve always wanted to be one and this was a goal I’d set for myself before surgery – to run a 5k! I have been doing the C5K program and it has been amazing. I mostly train at the gym on the treadmill, but due to a knee injury I had to stop a few weeks ago. This is when I began lifting, trying to strengthen my quads, hamstrings and calves. Tonight I decided that I will begin running again, but outdoors, not on my beloved treadmill. I did my 5 min warm up and then began my run… I was doing awesome until I reached a large downhill run , but my problem was not the speed I added, it was the fact that my Gitch and pants were falling down . I mean major losing my drawers in mid run! Thank god it was dark.. So this little mishap screwed my run because I had to hang onto my pants the whole way! However, I did complete 1.9 miles in 26 min and to me I was happy. I do believe my pace and distance could have been better if me ole drawers stayed put! Tomorrow I’m back in the gym for another lift session and possibly another run, with new running attire!
Crazy I tell you!
