8 KM

Last night I went for a run. I had taken a break for a few days as the soles of my feet were sore. I was going for 10km, but decided to stop earlier after I noticed that my left foot sole was starting to hurt.

Food consisted of 500cc of hand squeezed Sunkist OJ, two eggs and ham in the morning. I had a mango smoothie, an apple-pear, some fresh snow peas, some more ham and cheese during the rest of the day. I ended the night with another 500cc of hand squeezed OJ. It takes 6 oranges to make 500cc of OJ. That means that I had 12 oranges yesterday, plus more veggies and fruits.

The run.

Well, I think I started too fast. I ended up running 4km in 27 minutes, which wasn’t bad. Then I slowed down. I finished running 8km in 61 minutes. Taking away walking breaks, I could have easily done it in about 50-55 minutes. That will be my target, or running 10km in 60 minutes. Midway through the run, I could feel that the sole of my left foot was starting to hurt, which was why I cut my run short at 8km. I didn’t want to risk injury.

Tonight, I’d like to go back and run a faster 8km. I won’t be pushing for 10km. Maybe something like 55 minutes would be cool.
