The Daily EO: May 1st, 2013

I’ve not participated in enough exercise to merit the results I got in the Sun Run.  When I looked up how fast I should have been able to run it based on my fitness level and training level, I got “the average time for runners to complete a 10K race generally falls between 75 and 80 minutes”.   Not only that, based on a bunch of internet “calculators”, etc, considering my best time on a 5K (running regularly), my time was pretty darn good for a 10K (um, also considering it was the second time *ever* I have run a 10K.)  considering the lack of training.  75 minutes is quick average and I feel pretty good about this.

So, I started thinking about what if I was actually training?  What the hell would I be able to pull off then?  Whoa.  I could be sub 1 hour.  That’s crazy talk I know, but . ..  hmmm. .   I wonder. . .

Aside here, am I the only one who 2 days after a race forgets the pain and only remembers the glory and starts looking for the next race?  Really, how many technical tees do I need?

Anyways, since I really hate May for many reasons – though the Spring melt is not a May problem here in Vancouver, loving that – I thought that I need to do some exercise and training.  So for the month of May, I am going to try to run every day (a min of 2 kms).   Today I started out with 4.6 kms (shortened from 5k only because I was distracted by a big event in Victory Park with police presence and torches, and flags, and ambulances!  I couldn’t take the long route home – I had to Check! This! Out!)
