Well I did it! I went for a run, something I haven’t done in months! And it was great but terrible at the same time.
It was great to be out there running again, and even though I was moving the whole time, my pace was shocking – no like seriously, a herd of turtles could move faster than I was. See below, my time was over 9min a km! say WHAT?!
I have signed up for my first 10km race since Feb, its next week Saturday – hopefully I will be ready for it. My personal best for a 10km has been 1hr 16min, which I did last year August. I am not putting pressure on myself to do a PB next weekend, but I would really like to do it under 9min a Km.
I guess the thing I need to remember is that the most important thing is that I ran. I set a goal to run this week and I did it. And even though I have slipped into a speed that could possibly be classified as walking in some circles – the fact is I am starting over and I am reaching my goals – one day at a time.
