For a couple of weeks now I was pretty certain I was going to enter the Vancouver Sun Run this year. That was until I found out it is 10K not 5K. I’ve never run 10K, I’ve moved 10K certainly. I’ve run 5K, and I have run/walked 7K. I have walked 17 km continuously and I’ve worked several 12 hour shifts serving that included only one 15 minute break.
So, can I enter the Vancouver Sun Run? And run/walk 10K? I have not got enough running in for the last month for a variety of reasons, so I am nervous. The race is only 30+ days away. Can I be physically prepared for such a race?
Even as I type this, it for some reason seems to be a bad idea. I asked Emile if he would do it with me, and he said – unfortunately – that he would.
I just checked the balance of our bank account – we can afford it.
