couch 2 5k: week 8, day 3 {4.25.2013}

You would think, after more than 30 years, I would have mastered the art of tying shoelaces.

You would think.

But alas, this run was plagued with issues because of the simple fact that I could not get my laces tied correctly. Too tight, too loose, too constricting around the arch… You name it, it was wrong. I had to stop several times to adjust (although I did pause my app each time so I wasn’t losing time), and it just really dragged me down. I never did find my groove and just kind of slogged along for my time.

I was surprised that when I logged my session, active.com tagged it as my best pace and distance for the week. Go figure.

I hate feeling discouraged when I did so well by the numbers, but I am anxious to get out tomorrow or Saturday to redeem myself.

Incidentally, in one week, I’ll be forging ahead to the 5K-to-10K program. Eek. It’s humbling to think that I’ll be starting all over, but exciting to know that every step I take will bring me closer to my goal of the Tower of Terror 10 Miler in October and the Space Coast Half in December.

  1. Laces are a pain in the butt. I have the same thing happen a lot. I might try out Lock Laces at some point.

    One of my Twitter peeps recommended velcro. Not the cutest, but not a bad idea….
