3/20: Nutritionist 3/21: Skipped

Had metabolism testing at 8am – no food or drinking before. 

I did have another fleeting moment where I thought I could still get away with a run before hand. 

And then I realized that would require getting up at 4:30am … and that surely wasn’t happening. 

Bloodsugar was high after work.  First Tuesday with no activity in a long time.

3/4: Run

Birthday 5K!

Goal: 5k 

Ran: 3.11

Time: 0:29:57 | 9:38 

I didn’t sign up in time for the Shamrock 5k so I decided to create my own Birthday 5K … it was also my first solo run in Central Park. In which I ended on the west side in the 70s. I took the bus back over and ended up making it  way longer process – but made it home in time shower & head out for birthday brunch! 

It was not an easy run & a  reminder that not every run or race will be a PR.
