Tuesday was the only 5am run I did last week with Sarah, neither one of us was really wanting to get up this past week:) and with the weather getting nicer I enjoy the sunny afternoons. So I will probably go back to afternoon runs except on Tuesday and Thursday aerobic days. Wednesday the wind was so fierce I am surprised I talked myself into going but making a plan to meet Sarah really helped! Saturday I was set to run 12mi with Sarah but her foot is/was bothering her, so I met Kathy from my aerobic class again for the first 3miles and completed the rest of it by myself! I wasn't sure if I would do the entire 9 or not but convinced myself "YES You ARE!!" and I did. There was several times I wanted to walk but kept on going the best I could the last mile was the hardest but I pushed through it. When I looked back at my time and pace I was very pleased with myself! Watch out Run the Bluegrass you may not be my fastest half but I (we) are coming for ya!!
Friday I Posted about the awful (to me) start to my day. I had hoped that would mean the rest of the weekend would get better.......Saturday started out good but went DOWNHILL FAST!!! Something that I never would have expected(although maybe yes I did expect it) to happen did, another eye opening experience! BUT anyway............
Sunday I had a 5k race that was suppose to be on Saturday but got postponed due to a championship girls basketball game for the school that was hosting the race. I was unsure of how well I would be able to run since I did the 12miles on Saturday and it was at 4pm, that time of day is so hard to plan for to run a race for me anyway! My legs felt pretty good thanks to my CEP compression socks:) Love those things! I told myself to just run it how I felt, don't push myself too hard and just listen to my legs. Too my surprise my legs was ready to go faster than I thought they would! Although my distance came up a little short I was VERY PLEASED and HAPPY to finish in 25:45 WOO HOO!! My first decent race of the new year and best of all everyone in my group got a medal:) Most definitely the highlight of my weekend!
RUN HAPPY!! Hope everyone had a great week last week!
