|I love racing!|
1. This year starting in March I ran 13 races!
- a 5k mud run
- six 5k races
- two 5 mile races
- two 10k races
- two half marathons
Ha! and I almost forgot! I am doing a 5k this weekend, but I am not racing it. (Truly) I am running it with a girl I work with her husband and another girl. We are going to dress up for Halloween and have to run together for our costumes. Can you guess what we are going to be?
Last year I nine races and the year before only one! I saw improvements on all the courses I ran this year over last years races. I set a new PB for every distance I ran. I am excited to see what more I can do. I read somewhere that you can expect to see PRs 5 to 10 years once you start racing. That seems really incredible to me, but I am willing and wanting to find out how much faster I can be! FUN!
I have learned so much about hydration, pacing, fuel, recovery, and more! I love to race but more than just the competitive spirit I love the social aspect. All those other people with the same obsession as me! I love the 5k distance, but the more I race them the more I love half marathons. Both 5 miles races I did this year felt really "on", so consequently I love that distance too, 10ks not so much. Both of the 10ks I did I just felt off, tired, heavy legs, couldn't get my breathing under control. I am going to sign up for them again next year. I know it will be easy to PR them if I have an on day for one!
2. If you follow BodyRock at all, you might have seen that Freddy and Zuzanna broke up. Sad. I was a little bummed when I read it, but sounds like they have been working it out awhile and are ready to move on. Freddy went back to Canada and Zuzanna is in Hollywood for now.
|Just friends now|
I didn't run at all yesterday since I pushed pretty hard Sunday and ran 13.1 miles. I took it easy and spent an hour on the elliptical sweating and reading. It never is the same as running on so many levels! But it is better than nothing!
