A little brag

26 Mar

Just checking in quickly for a little bragging today. This morning I got up at 5am again and got on the treadmill. I felt much more energetic than I did yesterday! I banged out 6 miles with four 1/2 mile speedy chunks at 11:36, 11:34, 11:34 and 11:20 pace. I spent my cool-down mile building up to a strong sprint for the last .2. I really like ending my runs with some fast running and using up any energy I have left.

In the end I did 6 miles in 1:17:41.

ImageWhile this may be slow for some, I was psyched. If I hit that time in the 10k in a few weeks I will get a nice new shiny PR! I feel pretty confident in my ability to do this now. Just gotta keep sticking with my training plan and stay confident until race day!

    Yay! Don’t worry about others speeds. We are all out there, doing runs and trying to improve and enjoy. I’m really guilty of the comparison game and it never helps me…

    I can’t wait to read your ten K race report. that feeling of the new PR coming is wonderful, and with all the good work you have put in, you are doing great.
