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!
