Nerd Wanna Be Runner! Well that is what I felt like this morning. I was excited because today was the first day that I would be doing speed instead hills on a Wednesday! 2 X 2 repeats at 8:05 pace. Coach said I could rest after the first two so I was just focusing on getting my short sausage legs to move fast enough to get me to two miles.
When I got to two I decided to go keep on keeping on, worried that if I stopped I may not be able to fall back into that speedy pace.
So I made it...4 miles straight at 8:06 pace.
4 miles: 32:24! Huge FIRST for me!
5K P.R. as well (24.18)
I ran a mile warm up and .5 cool down as I was running out time. (seems to be a theme)
Anyhoo I was so excited that I texted my Coach! Yes, this is just what I needed. I am nailing this plan! Yippee! She was happy but pointed out I was suppose to run 7 total today!
I felt like a total NERD WANNA BE RUNNER! I ran 5.5! BOO!
It just reminded me that I don't know what the heck I am doing. I read my own training plan WRONG! So disappointing!
I know it may be ticky tacky but I am feeling a bit "sensitive" this time of the month! Still a huge victory and I am amazed and how I AM getting faster a little bit at a time. (even when bloated HA!)
So if there are any other NERD WANNA BE RUNNERS out there I would love to give you a shout out! I think I am going to be here for awhile...so much to learn! Step one: read your plan CORRECTLY!
Well today is also the day I get to announce the THIRSTY THURSDAY giveaway. So with out further nerdiness....Pink Hat Runner is the winner of the Running for Him shirt amd $25 gift card.
