A Teeny PR

Another race done in the winter trail series and I got a teensy, tiny PR .... 12 whole seconds - hahhaaa, but I'll take it.

I'm happy with that, but admit that I'm a little afraid that this is my peak.  Will I ever get better?  I had hoped for a lot more improvement.  I want more, alot more ... but, to be honest with myself, I haven't really been training for improvement.  In fact, the last few weeks I haven't been running a whole lot at all.  So really, I don't exactly deserve big PRs right now.  Guess I have to want it more.

The trail was great.  Even though we've had alot of rain, the footing on this one is fantastic.  It's very hilly though, with one major steep hill that you have to run twice, and then multiple little rollers for a good 4K of the route. 

My Garmin was quite a bit short on the distance.  It was the exact same route as last year, however the Garmin showed it being about 1/2 Km shorter which is fairly significant.

So, overall the weekend was fantastic.  A teeny little PR for me.  Both kids won their soccer games.  My son's coaches said it was his best game all season - he was rock solid!  Can't believe that he won't be playing much longer :(.  Saturday my daughter's boyfriend came over and we all watched UFC together, such a nice kid. 

This week I'm going to put a more concentrated effort into running and actual training.  Need to build my distance back up again.  Only 5 weeks until my half marathon and I HAVE to rock that!!!

Keep Active!

Agree with Kimert: a PR is a PR so I'm very proud of you!

And when you think that maybe this is it concerning the speed, 12 seconds is even better!

Have fun at the training this week.
