domingo rogers: Capturing Life in the Fullest

5K Race Times – Day 3 of 100DTD Challenge (Physical)

Tonight I decided to set out and “officially” record my 5K time as a benchmark for me to improve upon.  My route is right in my neighborhood and is according to Google Maps just over 3.1 miles.

My time was 27:04  Compared to when I last timed myself at 17:26 I have a lot of ground to make up, but compared to what I am seeing on some of the races I am looking at running in 27:04 is a respectable benchmark that will only improve as I train over these next 90+ days.  My source for this information comes from the following three sites:

After running I spent a good 15-20 minutes in static stretches as I know I needed it.

Static stretching: side split, front split, double sitting straight leg, single sitting straight leg (both sides), butterfly, quads (both side)

Food:  Breakfast was 1 bowl of Golden Grahams with a glass of V8 fruit juice.  A cup of coffee in the morning at work.  Lunch was a Claim Jumper frozen meal of chicken alfredo with water.  I had a snack of jalapeno chips at work and more water.  Dinner was chicken chow mien, with crunchy noodles and I also had a large bowl of Japanese rice seasoned with regular soy sauce (not low sodium) and Japanese rice seasoning.  Oh, and I’m hungry again!

Rating of my day (5 star scale):  3.5

Highlight: Ate more and slightly better than from previous days and enjoyed a great 5k run!

Something to improve upon:  Getting more limber

Oh and in closing here are the images of what I am striving to improve upon:
