Okay, so I didn't think I could top yesterday's run for a long, long time. It gave me hope that I could break the 35 minute mark for a 5K, but I figured it was a goal I was working towards.
Tonight's training run was 3 miles, but I went the extra tenth of a mile because it was going so amazing. I ran the first 2 miles with no walk breaks at all, walked a tenth of a mile, ran half a mile, walked another tenth, and then ran it home...and I am shocked.
I didn't think I could hold this pace for this long. I thought I had a long road ahead.
But my splits:
Mile 1: 11:01
Mile 2: 10:20
Mile 3: 11:39
I felt GREAT. It was challenging, but not grueling. I could have gone longer. Maybe faster? I was trying to conserve the first mile.
I'm in shock. 35 goal for a 5K...totally in reach. But maybe too easy.
