Less than one week until my first race! I’m getting quite nervous. But my training is going really well actually. Not sure if this is right, but I decided to reduce my mileage a little, to make sure my legs are fresh and well rested on race day. We’ll see if it works.
For yesterday’s Lunch Break Run I had planned to run a little farther than usual. I want to gradually increase my distances, so I can run a 10k one day.
- Distance: 4.23 miles (6 km)
- Time: 45:00 minutes
- Average pace: 10:38 min/mile
- Feeling: Awesome
Great pace for such a long distance! And I ran the entire 45 minutes without stopping or walking at all!
Just for fun I re-read some of my older posts from November, and I can’t believe the progress I’ve made in just six months. I’ve reduced my average pace by two minutes and almost doubled my monthly mileage! I’d say that’s quite good for someone who’s not a natural at running.
Now I’m off to a very busy weekend, filled with an epic bachelorette party, lots of alcohol, and junky food. I hope I’ll get out of this alive.
Have a great weekend everyone!
