Did it! I ran a 5k two days in a row. It felt great. As usual, I paced myself to my heart rate. It’s frustrating when I feel like I want to go faster, but the heart rate is close or above 170, and I must slow down. As in life, patience is a virtue. The same applies to running. If you push yourself beyond what is healthy, you risk injury or much worse. At my age, exercise is great in moderation.
