I’m not going to lie…. My two short runs were not pretty this week. They were so bad that I was starting to doubt myself as a runner and my ultimate goal for the Nike Half which is a sub 2:20 (which is 10:40 pace). I know I shouldn’t be too upset, but the pace of them was nowhere near as good as I had been running lately…especially since they were only 2.5 miles each, they should not have been as bad as they were. I’m not sure what was up those days, but Saturday’s run was redemption!
It was a pretty perfect day for a run. I only had to avoid a few ice puddles/mud puddles and I just felt like I was running really well. I finished the five mile run at 50:16 which was 10:02 pace. That is really good for me, so I was very happy. That run definitely gave me hope that with the improving outdoor weather that I’ll be able to work towards my Nike Half goal outdoors for the remaining 6 weeks of training!
