Post 15 KM

After my 15km run of last night, I’m feeling pretty good actually. I was expecting to have trouble walking, but it’s not that bad. My hips are hurting. On my legs, my right knee is the worst. I’ll ice it down later today.

I forgot to mention that it was my weigh-in yesterday. My weight is 75kg (165lbs). That’s pretty good. I used to weigh 96 kg (211kg). I’ve lost a lot of fat, 46 lbs pounds worth!

Today is going to be a good day. I’m going into Taipei and teaching for a few hours.

I’m surprised, because I feel good enough to go for a little run later tonight. It will only be a few km, but I’ve worked out a few goals last night, while I was tossing and turning. For some reason, it took me a while to get to sleep. Maybe it was the soreness in my legs.

I’d like to run 5 km in 25 minutes. 10 km in about 50 minutes. And 15 km in an 1:15 hour. Now that I know I can run that much, it’s time to start working on my pace and speed. The easiest one to work on is the 5km in 25 minutes. I run at a leisurely pace, and I take about 36 minutes to complete 5.2 km. I’m sure that I can cut down on that time a lot, if I accelerate.

The bonus of that situation is that 5.2 km will become more of a workout. I also want to do more interval training. I’ll do that on Friday or Saturday. Just like last time, no more than 4-5.2km that way though.
