New Personal Record!!!!
Monday, April 25, 2011
I am feeling SOOOO good right now! Best recorded run for a 5K, and it was 4 minutes better than I anticipated!!! I'm so amazed at myself, I don't even understand how I did it. I had to go home and blog about it right away, but I'll need to do some extra stretching soon. My left calf is aching more than I'd like it to. It's totally worth the accomplishment today though!
I notice that:
- I run much better in running tights than any other types of bottoms. I'm definitely investing in more of these
- I'm highly motivated by people passing me by. It gives me the extra push or keeps me from giving in to walking. This will be key for the 5K on Sunday.
-Sun makes a HUUUUUUGE difference. Unfortunately it's very hard to come by in Seattle. I appreciated the sun today more than ever, and vow never to let a sunny run day go to waste if I can help it.
My reward today is a shopping trip @ the grocery store. Okay, I needed to go today anyway...but I'll probably end up picking up some ingredients to make a smoothie or something fun like that.
I CAN'T STOP SMILING!!!
