It’s hard to believe that today was the first day that I ran in a week. That’s not a good thing – I was really hoping to get in some type of recovery run after last week’s 1/2 marathon, but my hip was killing me. I babied it all week and went out for a run this morning. My goal for today was a 5K. What I did was try to push – run faster. I was very successful running it at an 8:38 pace, which if you compare it to anything I’ve done of late – at least 20 seconds a mile faster.
I missed my goal of running 100 miles in April, by just 8 miles. The good news is that I got in three already this month and Pam and I are going to do more walking. Hopefully, I can get to that 120 mile mark this month. I do have a 5k race this coming weekend for Comfort Care. I think my training runs this week will focus on faster rather than longer and I’m hoping maybe I can be under 26 minutes next Saturday.
Until next week, I am Pressing On!
