I decided to go ahead and run the FFFK today. I'm just not sure if I'm going to get to run tomorrow or not. So I decided to get it in a day early. My time for the 5K was 28:34. That was outdoors, in fairly cold weather. At least there was little wind. But it surely would have been faster on the track. I hope that I didn't let you down, Nancy.
As you can see from the above logo, I have abandoned all pretense that the FFFK is anything other than a pathetic plea for attention. Objectively, though, I think I have to admit that Non-Runner Nancy is cuter than I am. Maybe it's the rose.
Grandma Jogger also joined in the fun, along with her cardiac rehab group. She writes:
Today, February 13, 2009, five heart patients and two friends/spouses who were exercising along with us dedicated their stepping, walking, bicycling and elliptical exercise to Non-runner Nancy for your Freakishly Flexible 5K “Race”. Results are in this table, but I leave it to you to translate steps and miles into kilometers. Please let me know the translation so I can report it back at rehab next week. I think we all had fun thinking about her, and will keep her in our thoughts and prayers in future days.
|Person||Recumbent stepper (steps)||Stationary bike|
|Jerry (bypasses )||-||1.258||-||-|
|Dorothy (spouse)||-||-||-||3.2||TOTAL||15635||4.9||3.778||3.2 |
OK, the Bike, Treadmill, and Elliptical total 11.9 miles, which is just over 19 km. I have no idea how to translate the steps into km.
