OK, so I am in with my results, a little early but Angie and I did the Carlsbad 5000 5K here in Carlsbad, California today. A race we have done many times in the last 12 years.

My daughter and son in law joined us for breakfast at one of our favorite Irish pubs then we walked the race in a crowd of thousands! There was an estimated 10,000 walkers and runners combined in all the races today.....the walk being the largest. We stayed back and had a nice walk and visit with the kids, having to take it a bit easy since my daughter had run 16 miles in training yesterday for her upcoming marathon. Our chip time was 58 minutes...definitely one of our slower ones but we had a great time :)

We finished in my favorite place....:carrot:the beer garden :carrot:

Pics of Angie and I in front of the pub ~ Angie and Amanda stretching ~ Angie making funny faces 'cause she is married to me....that is a cross on my hat for Palm Sunday ~ some of the crowd in our race ~ me in the beer garden :carrot:

I ran 10K last weekend and 5K on the treadmill yesterday. The 10K time was 71 minutes, which works out to about 35:30 for a 5K. However, given where I was when I saw 34 minutes on my watch, I was probably at around 35:00 at 5K. BUT. I ran the 5K on the treadmill, and hit 5K at exactly 37:26. So I can only conclude that I run faster outside than on the treadmill. And I enjoy it more outside, so I guess that makes sense. :dizzy:

So! Let's go with 2 times: 35:30 outside, and 37:26 on the treadmill. Yay!! :carrot:

Thanks for the motivation EZ! And sometimes walking toward beer works as good motivation too. ;)

Gary great pics again. These are funnier than the other ones. It is so great that you have someone to do these with. So far, I go solo. Hoping to change that this summer and get a friend to join me.

I'll be back later this weekend with my results.

Especially when I know I am going to get Angie's second beer ticket :).....used to get both my daughter's tickets but now the :p kidnapper :p gets her second one...she actually drinks about 3 sips out of a beer now...that's enough for her!

It is more fun having someone to walk with, I hope your friend joins you...then again, just a few minutes ago I returned from 3 miles...just me and my dogs and my i-pod....rockin' to Neil Diamond :carrot:

i am new here and will do 5K tomorrow :) but my question is... will you make a list like you did give up numbers... and maybe you can put time next to it? So all of us will be together as a "group" with each own time? I just dont know how normally its done :)

That is a very good idea UNWANTED! However, I don't think it is something I will be able to do....I might be able to do it sometimes but not consistently...being new here "YOU DON'T KNOW ME" ;) I am in construction and many times I am out of town without a computer. I need to catch up on week-ends if I get home. Sometimes it is real difficult to keep these 5K's going because of my job. I have found out that people seem to do better when they can count on certain things...such as there always being a 5K out there to train for or run/walk in. I am afraid the time it takes to post all the times could be something I would drop the ball on. Sometimes it is all I can do to get the numbers up. OH!!! and I am not good with computer stuff....my dear wife is always fixing my mistakes here for me! Now if anyone else wants to volunteer to do it...I AM ALL FOR THAT!!! I do not own these 5K's...they are for all of us...I am always open to new and exciting ways to do things....ANY THING at all that keeps us all moving forward! :hug:

just did it on the treadmill. was totally awful, for some reason. 30:11 but sooo painful the whole way and could barely breathe afterwards. i guess the 8 cigarettes and 5 drinks last night prob didn't help. might try again on monday. i don't like backsliding.

Just finished my first 5K, walking most of it as I only started my C25K training a week ago.
I did it in 51 minutes.
Not a great time, but it will give me a target to shoot at for the next time!

Just checking in to report that I just finished my 5K. I did it in 43 min. and I ran the whole thing. I have never ran all 3.1 miles before. And let me tell you the hills on my course are killer.

More good news today. My scale reported 189.4. Yippee!!! Today is a great day to be alive!! :cool:

I did 5 5Ks this week. I didn't run any of them, but I average about 52 minutes. Today's was slower than normal because DH did it with me. But DH did it with me, so I am happy about that. :)

I finally got mine done today. I got sick last Thursday and have been totally out of it until today. So I took it easy and leisurely walked the first mile, did the 2 mile WATP's & then did 30 minutes strength training too. :)

soo, after feeling terrible for two days following my 5K (both emotionally and physically), i took the liberty of a do over this afternoon, with far better results (both physically, psychically, and time-wise): 27 mins, 59 seconds, which is just 6 seconds than my time in February. And I this time I don't feel like I'm going to vomit or otherwise die afterwards. so yay! :carrot::carrot: what a difference no hangover makes!! :dizzy: lesson learned, i believe.
