It was raining when I woke up at 4AM. I got dismayed because I was about to participate in the Runkeeper Global 5K 2nd Edition Challenge today since I registered to join it a few weeks ago. However, at 5, the drizzle had stopped so my wife and I took the chance to do our morning walk at the ovals. When I entered the oval grounds, there were only 3 or 4 of us on the tracks. Probably the others did not come because of the rain. Despite the gloomy skies, the rain did not come back and I was able to finish 5.09 KM in 48.52 minutes, averaging 9.36 minutes per kilometer. I'm happy I made it! When I arrived home and opened my email, I got a message from Runkeeper congratulating me for finishing the challenge. They will send the results by the end of next week. I won't mind where I stand in the results. I'm happy enough that I made it LOL!

An average 9.36 minute km is a pretty good pace! I'm only able to do about 11 minute kms these days!

Hehehe! It's my goal every time I do my walking at the ovals to have an average of no more than 10 minutes a kilometer :)
