Row 4000 meters - check
Run a timed 5k - nope
In my defense, I do have to add that on top of the rowing Friday, we threw in 60 push-ups, 45 sit-ups on the incline bench and 40 knee raise things. Then on Saturday I had a kick-ass Body Attack class and threw a couple of miles around the track on afterwards. I really tried to get that 5k yesterday afternoon, as the weather was GORGEOUS, but it just felt awful and I threw in the towel after 2.5 craptastic miles around the track at the school. Could I have finished the 5k? Sure. Would I have turned in my time? Absolutely, positively NOT! LOL It was that bad :X I also had every plan to go run it today over my lunch hour, but ended up talking myself/getting talked out of it. I haven't had a day off since last Tuesday and if I ran today, my next option for a rest day would have been Thursday. That, combined with the fact that I want to also do Body Attack tomorrow night, after training with Rich over lunch, ended up making my decision for me. I'm a selfish biatch...I would rather have the 600 cals burned from doing Body Attack compared to the 300ish cals that 5k would have given me :P
So, here is my next dilemna...do I just tell Rich I didn't do it, or just give him a number that I know I'm capable of? It's not like we hired him to get us to be faster runners (although I am hopeful that will be a side effect of all this training), so really do I care that much? Oh, and I do fully intend to run that 5k on Thursday, instead of taking it as a rest day.
Let me know what you think!
