First 5k of the season was this past Thursday. The race I did on Thursday was the same race that was my first ever 5k last year. It was so much more enjoyable this time around! I did it alone because my friend had to bail at the last minute, but I was okay with that. I finished in 46min according to my phone and 51min according to their official clock. Last year according to them I finished in 54ish minutes so I am okay with my time.
My next 5k is the cross country one that I did last year where I thought I was going to die. My goal this time around is to beat my time from last year which was 48min. I am getting stronger and able to run for longer periods of time so my hopes are high for the June cross country race.
I have been double thinking my idea to attempt the half marathon. I struggle keeping a 15min mile pace and anything over 7miles is sooo boring to me! I was truly questioning my capability to complete this goal. That was until this weekend :-)
Saturday morning I slept until 10am (that never happens!) I got up slow, ate, did some cleaning yada yada. Around 12ish I got ready to hit the track for 7 miles. When I got there it was occupied by a lacrosse game. Oh great I thought. I started through the neighborhoods around the school. Very soon after, my phone buzzed from a text and I noticed after 6min I was already at .50. Jokingly to myself I thought "if I keep this up I could do a mile in12min." Next thing I know my phone states "one mile completed. Time 13:37! WTF!!!! That is THE fastest I have ever done a mile in my life! So the remainder of my 7 miles I worked my ass off to manage a 15min mile. In the end my average pace was15:46 and I am cool with that.
I don't know if it is because I slept so late but it was an amazing wog!
Biggest loser is on week 3 at work and I am down 5lbs so far! Things are good!
I'll check in soon, hopefully before mg next 5k!!
