First 5 mile run

Posted on 05. Oct, 2008 by in Fitness

Encouraged by yesterday’s effort to hit the one hour limit, today I ventured to run the first-non-stop-five-miles of my life.

Machine : LifeFitness 95Te

Warm up time : 5 mins
Warm up distance : 520 m
Running time : 55 mins
Distance covered : 5.1 miles
Inclination : 0 degrees
Cool down time : 5 mins
Cool down distance 460 m
Calories burnt : 635

After effects :
- A few people asking me if I was training for the half-marathon
- A ravenous appetite despite drinking a litre of water
- 1000 calorie breakfast
- 3 hours of sleep after breakfast

Where all does it still hurt?
- Calves
- Hamstrings
- Lower back
