"Your records didn't stand a chance!"

Sunday, December 20, 2015

I like seeing that pop up on my Nike + running app after a run. Friday last week it showed at the finish of a 5k run/walk with my two sisters. Next to pop up was "You ran your fastest ever mile today!" Wow : )

I haven't been running much and Friday's run was just a social session with my sisters, no challenges. What made the record mile possible was that the first part of our course after a 10-minute warm-up walk was about a kilometre of downhill followed by an couple K of nice flat ground. I guess it was the downhill and flat parts that let us go fast enough to break previous PB's. Whatever the circumstances, it was fun to get those shout-outs from the app--good motivation to get me back in training for April's Vancouver Fun Run. Guess I should aim for a new PB on that course.

Wishing all my SparkFriends a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
