Day 792 -- FFFK


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.

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.

2000 steps is a mile, so you figure out how many steps is in a kilometer and give us credit for that along with the 19 K you gave us for the miles moved.

Great idea about the FFFK for Nancy. I heard about it through Chic Runner.
My husband and I did 8 miles today but I dedicated about 5 miles to Nancy. The first 3 were awful.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Oh my gosh. I am so bawling at the rehabbers thinking of me and praying for me. You are too sweet and so are they !!!

I have never run a 5k that fast but no matter how fast or slow you ran it, you pretty much could not have let me down.

Thanks so much for your caring!
