I did it!!! I set out for a goal for my Sunday run and totally beat it – plus set a personal best!
I started the morning with my new pre-workout routine – drinking a cup of Green Tea and a few grapefruit slices.
I was feeling a little under the weather, so I wasn’t sure if I would hit my goal of a 5 mile run. I had planned on going outside and running as much as I could and to enjoy the beautiful Sunday morning. Once I got outside and felt the fresh air, my plans changed. I didn’t think, I just ran. I ran for those who couldn’t run, I ran for my uncle who is fighting cancer. I ran for myself, for being strong and healthy enough to enjoy the morning. I got lost in my music and my thoughts and before I knew it, I had hit 5 miles.
I decided to keep going until 6 miles to push myself. That’s when I looked down at my MotoActv and realized I could beat my best time for a 10K (6.26 miles). Why not, I had already run 5 1/2 miles…. what’s another .75?! Don’t get me wrong, the last bit 8 minutes of my run were some of the hardest. I had never run that fast of a mile and I was gasping for air. But I couldn’t and wouldn’t stop until I hit my goal!!
My new personal best – 58:38 for a 10K!!! I am overjoyed! It wasn’t an official race, I raced against myself. There’s nothing like crossing an imaginary finish line knowing that you left it all on the road. 🙂 Pefect day, perfect time, perfect pace, and perfect run!!
(Later that night I snuck in some Turbo Fire and ChaLean Extreme)
