It's time to get serious about the Corporate 5k which takes place late April in downtown Orlando. I decided yesterday that Saturday is going to be the start of my regular training regimen. I haven't picked out workouts yet, but I am committing to training 6 days a week. This may be in the form of strength training as well. I will try to run every day even if it just the warmup. I didn't tell anyone of my intention, not even Kim, for fear of not living up to expectations. I've been told by coaches, mentors, and peers that I have lots of potential. Not just in running, but I have heard this about other endeavors as well.
Well, I'm happy to state that I have gotten off to a good start. I ran one lap around Lake Ivanhoe this morning. That logs 2.5 miles so far. I took it easy. 10 minute pace. It was a perfect cool morning of 58 degrees.
