I planned to walk this entire 5K again because of the back pain I've been experiencing. However, once the race started and the adrenaline started pumping, I had to take off! I jogged and walked off and on throughout the entire race.
I was happy that the organizers of this race chose a different route through the town than I was previously used to doing. The March of Dimes walk and the Charles County Walk for the Homeless that I did 2 years ago used the same route. Admittedly, it gets boring doing the same route and knowing what to expect. Even though I jogged at various points during the race, my back never really bothered me and I was so happy about that. I hope this back issue starts to dissipate because I haven't been pushing myself at the gym for fear of injuring myself further.
