Ouch

Last night me, my girlfriend and two co-workers went to run the Jingle Bell 5k in downtown Dallas. Well I say run because I walked most of the time with some killer shin splints. I finished the 3.2 miles in 46 minutes. It's not bad because it's a 12 minute per mile pace. I'd really like to get to what I did in July for the Liberty 5k where I finished the 5k in 30 minutes.

I was reading a half Ironman training program and it stated that to begin this program if I have to be able to consistently swim 40min, run 60min and bike 90min. If I can't even do a 5k without hurting, I have a lot of work ahead of me. It looks like if I want to do this half Ironman I have to step up my game.
