I found myself on a 5.10 mile run.... I ran 1 mile warm-up, a 5k time trial and 1 mile warm-down.
My 5k-- not a pr, but two of the individual miles (the first two were pr's....the second faster than the first) and then I lost the tempo in the last 1.3 miles of the run..... AND overall, the experience was a positive one. A learning experience about going out hard..... A learning experience about pushing myself to the limit..... A learning experience about what I am capable of with a week off from training.
And then I enjoyed a cup of coffee on the way home....... and the long walk back.
AND..... I did a weigh-in on my return. While the weight (number on the scale) has not changed, my body fat has dropped 2%.
I am looking forward to upping my training tomorrow as this is going to be my best fitness year!!
