Today, over lunch, a friend and I headed up to the State Capitol to do the Run@Work 5K. It’s an event, mostly targeted at government workers in the area, to get out and run a friendly 5K over lunch. There were a fair amount of people there, which made it somewhat comical because the police that were helping insisted we stick to the sidewalks. Needless to say there was a lot of jockeying around in the first half a mile as we tried to spread out on the width of a sidewalk.
I managed to put in a good time, around 28 minutes and change. My body felt really good, and I also ran back and forth from my office building before and after the race. Glad to be back out there running and feeling recovered. I’m going to skip my long run this week, and will be hitting it hard again next week.
