5 miles @ home (10:47)

02 Oct

Comments: I had so much crap to do today, but I HAD to get my 5 miler in there. After all it was ONLY 5 miles. So with frustrations build up during the day I tried to run it all off and I sure did. I pushed myself the whole way. This has to be a PR for 5 miles at home! (Edit: I checked and it is a PR – woot!)

My right leg was tight in the beginning, my calve muscle hurt for a while and then it moved to the front of the leg, but it didn’t turn into any antagonizing pain, so I pushed through it. I am happy about this run because my 22 miler was so incredible slow.

    It is amazing how running can take care of a little frustration… and lead to a PR! Great job and keep on tearing ’em up.

    I love running hard after a slow run. Like a big exclamation point or something. Great job on the PR!

    Thanks for the note. I did the marathon last year in 5:41 ish and I’m hoping that this year won’t be too much slower–5:40-5:50, i guess.

    hope your training is going well.
