Worldwide WP 5K 2015

I com­plet­ed WWWP5k this after­noon. This is my first 5k run. I’m pleased that it is part of world­wide Word­Press com­mu­ni­ty event.

I ran in the Unitec uni­ver­si­ty cam­pus near my home. I hoped run in the near­by park but the day got hec­tic and I end­ed up run­ning in my beau­ti­ful neigh­bor­hood.

I am hap­py with my stats, giv­en this is my first 5k and the last run before this was in Decem­ber 2013 for 3.39k. I exer­cise reg­u­lar­ly but I know run­ning and exer­cis­ing are not the same. But I think my rou­tine Thurs­day legs work­out helped a bit. I set the expec­ta­tion low­er and bud­get­ed about an hour for the run. I sur­prised myself by com­plet­ing 5k in half the expect­ed time.

The above pic­ture is tak­en when I fin­ished the run on the foot­path by the side of Car­ring­ton Road and Wood­ward Road inter­sec­tion in the Mount Albert sub­urb of Auck­land at 6:22 p.m.

I ran non-stop for about 3k at mod­er­ate pace. Then the ter­rain got steep­er uphill and I had to switch between walk­ing and run­ning for the rest 2k.

It’s a great feel­ing to com­bine two of my pas­sions, Word­Press and fit­ness and join the fel­low blog­gers across the globe for the fun run.

Go Word­Pressers!
