i did the wild women 8K a few weeks ago, enjoyed it, and was pleased with my results. yesterday i did another 5K in cold, wind and rain. it was not fun. but i was glad i did it. perhaps the weather inspiration paid off, i made my best time yet, 11:14 per mile. this is, of course, very slow, but i'll never be speedy. i WOULD like to get to 10 minute miles, which probably won't happen until i shed some of this incredibly persistent weight. but at least it seems somewhat possible now.
i've got to step up the training if i'm going to hit a half marathon by october. i'd hoped to come out of winter doing 8-10 miles regularly, but lately i've had a hard time reaching my short term goal of 6-8 once a week, and have only done 8 and 9 miles once each. doing over twice the distance of a 10K seems very daunting right now, but if i can bump up my training runs (which i'll have time to do toward the end of june through the summer) and get in a few 10Ks between now and then, i know that anxiety will subside.
now to get the portions back under control......
