Beautiful morning for a PR

It’s been a great training week. Food and water intake is back on track, now just have to keep it up!

Weekly training recap2

Training this week:

Sunday: Spin class

Monday: Track workout, core and conditioning

Tuesday: Track, 100×10, 300×10 recovery pace, 2 mile warm-up

Wednesday: Spin and abs

Thursday: 4.6 miles

Friday: Rest day

Saturday: 5k race

One of my goals for this year was to run a sub 24 minute 5k. I set that goal thinking it would take me until at least Summer or Fall to achieve it. Well, I crushed it this morning so now I have to set a new goal. Apparently all this hard work is paying off and I’m beside myself with excitement!

Green Door 5k, benefiting Children’s Relief International

It was a chilly morning, but I knew I’d warm up fast. It was a hilly course, but one I’m very familiar with so I knew what to expect. I am still a little shocked at my progress, not sure it has sunk in yet. I ended up placing 1st in my age group, 3rd overall and 2nd female to cross. Ally didn’t set a PR this morning but she ran a good race and came in first in her age group as well.

I saw so many PR’s achieved this morning, it was great to be there to cheer my friends on as they hit their goals in the 5k and 10k.

I have the Zooma half coming up in 2 weeks. Not sure that I have any time goals for that yet. A friend is going with me, I’m looking forward to running it and hanging out.

Did you race this weekend? Run a training run?

Did you workout?
