The May Virtual 5k and 10k Race Series + 1 mile Fun Run finish line (for after you complete your own “race”)

The big win of the week… I got in my 5k and 10k for May already! I usually wait until the last week of the month, so I’m really happy. For the 10k, I walked and jogged, and ended up with pace under last month’s pace. I am thinking that I would like to jog/run a 10k race in the fall. Eating – same story as I’ve been telling the past two months. I’m back up 2 pounds this week.
Friday: two walks totaling 32 minutes, 10,481 steps/day
Saturday: one walk totaling 39 minutes, 11,894 steps/day
Sunday: two walks totaling 30 minutes, 11,251 steps/day
Monday: one walk/jog totaling 75 minutes, 16,395 steps/day *10k
Tuesday: one walk totaling 45 minutes, 12,261 steps/day *5k
Wednesday: one walk totaling 31 minutes, 10,143 steps/day
Thursday: 55 minutes Body Flow + one walk totaling 45 minutes, 12,500+ steps/day
* I track two different goals. The first goal is a timed duration of exercise – moving with the intent to raise my heart rate and get in some cardiovascular work. This is what I’m mean when I say “45 minutes walking.” The second goal is total daily steps. This is from my Fitbit, which measures all steps from 12:00AM – 11:59PM, exercise included.
