I can’t believe I forgot to write about this. I guess I was so excited that blogging simply slipped my mind.
I can fly!
Well, not really. But when I ran on Tuesday, it felt like I was flying. I did great and felt fantastic!
The first thing that happened was that I ran a mile in 10:30. Ten minutes! I can’t believe it. After struggling for so long to maintain a 14 minute pace, 10:30 felt fantastic.
The second thing that happened was that I broke a personal record. When I ran my first 5K in April, I ran it at 43 minutes. When I ran my second one in May, I ran it at 41 minutes. Most of my training has been between 45 and 55 minutes. Tuesday… I ran a 5K in 36:22.
WHAT? Oh my goodness. I can’t believe it. I simply can’t believe it. I have no idea how I did it. I maintained an 11:45 pace for the whole run. I think that was the best run I have ever had.
I don’t know if I’m going to be able to repeat it anytime soon, but I know I will hold that memory for a very long time.
