I’m sure by now you’ve seen the Nuun #RunBikeHydrate (Virtual 5k, 10k and 10 mile bike ride) all over Instagram! So I’ll tell you a little about how my run went.
This 5k I planned was a loop near my gym which started downhill, climbed the 2nd mile and had a downhill finish. I wouldn’t necessarily consider this a legit 5k time since I had to stop at a few lights and stop to catch my breath in the humidity. For a speed work sesh, i’m happy with it. To even see sub-7 paces on my watch is a huge win coming back from an injury.
The mile splits were 7:00, 7:15, 6:50
Virtual 5ks are kinda strange. It’s easy to cheat…i.e. me stopping for a breather a few times. And it’s also hard to really cruise without stopping at lights, unless you’re on a track or treadmill. However! I still did feel the urge to push the pace and “race” and I still got a little nervous before I took off. What are your thoughts on virtual races?
What are your thoughts on self timers? I suck at it. haha Pretty sure I was chewing gum in this one.

Awesome job on the virtual 5k! So glad to continue seeing you come back strong from you injury!
As for the selfies and pics – love them! Honestly, I think your ‘mistake’ pics are adorable, but they show you as someone who will fill a room with laughter even when no one else knows what the joke even is … 🙂 That is a pretty cool quality.
