Man, I am just AWFUL at keeping up sometimes. I vow this week I will stop posting only once a week.
Vow, promise, swear etc.
I'm currently sitting at work, sipping my coffee, prepping for a long day in this office which I just opened at 8am. And I will be closing at 8pm.
Anyway as I sip my coffee and peruse the running world websites I frequent I find myself wondering if sometimes, even though I fail to write on here, I peruse too much and don't do enough school work.
Goodness, there, I said it. I'm preoccupied with my training. School is getting more and more difficult to focus on. I'm stuck in this mode where I don't want to graduate, but I really want to graduate, so I'm at a standstill. Kind of stuck in limbo honestly. I'm always/generally more than willing to get up and go for a run or go to the gym...but try and get me up early to do a lab? No thanks. I like school, I really do, I'm just a little...well tired of it.
Enough about that blah blah.
My 5k last weekend was wonderful, I got a PR by 2 mins and was first in my age group! With a 26:47. Not the best time in the whole wide world, but I was very happy with it. I started off at a 9 min/mile pace because I was pacing someone else and then progressively got faster. It felt good, and smart, and like I could definitely run one faster.
Good news, I have that opportunity in a few weekends! Another free 5k!
I'm very happy I'm an Atlanta Track Club member.
I have a 7 mile run planned tomorrow and I am legitimately excited for it. The weather in Atlanta is supposed to be beautiful!
Look at THAT!
That's all for now. Later I will be posting everything I will be/want to order from the Brooks website.
I may-or-may-not have a very long list.I need an overhall on my running apparel!
