It’s hard to believe that May is over already.
I’ve been meaning to sit down and write about my running but honestly I haven’t had time. I’m forcing a quick post because it is the end of the month.
I ran one race, which i never talked about, but I’ll talk about it now. I ran in a 1 mile race in the middle of the month. I wasn’t sure how it would go. Last year I couldn’t run because I was hurt, but this year I signed up not expecting anything. It was hot, 90degrees and I don’t run well in the heat.
The race started and I was quickly passed by a few people. I settled into my pace, and started to feel something amazing. I surged forward and began catching and passing people. I was cooking on all cylinders and finished 3rd in my age group with a 5:31mile. This was 2seconds off my time from two years ago. I was astonished by the time because I didn’t think I could run that fast anymore.
Overall I was pleased with the race and results.
Looking back at my goals for this month I wanted to run 100miles for the month. I wasn’t even close. I had some tough days and all said and done I only ran 50 miles. I am disappointed with the miles but something changed this month. I’ve been running about 25 seconds faster per mile. I think something woke up during the mile race. I’m not trying to push the pace, it is something that is happening on its own.
I hope to improve my mileage for June, stay health and continue to work on my mental side of running.
See I told you this was going to be quick
