2013 goals - one goal: finish my first marathon - 10/13/13
Hi, I rarely post here but I want to brag about something and I feel like the bragging thread is a good place to do it!!! Yesterday, I ran a 10K. It was my 8th....and I have been attempting a sub-60 minute 10K since May. Something always goes wrong to prevent it....and that remains true for yesterday's race....the organizers had to modify the course to be 6.7 miles. My official time was 1:04:09....which is not sub-60 BUT I did see on my Garmin that I hit 6.2 miles in 59:55!! AND it was a very small race and I managed to place 30th overall out of 75, 14th female out of 48, and 3rd in my AG out of 14!!! By far my strongest and best placing race to date....usually I place in the middle but more towards the back of the pack!!! This is my first time getting a top 3 AG place!
PRs: 5K- 28:16 (5/5/13) 10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13) 4M- 41:43 (9/7/13) 15K- 1:34:25 (8/17/13) 10M- 1:57:23 (6/15/13) HM- 2:21:47 (10/12/13)
I ran 4 miles today with no walk breaks and kept my pace consistant for the first time ever.
Kristen, excellent work & always nice little motivational boost placing in AG. you are just going to get stronger too!
That is awesome. Great job. It's always nice to get an AG no matter how small the race.
I love reading everyone's victories, and I find them so motivational -- perhaps especially the ones that could be characterized as "small." My small victory for the day was doing my speed work out even though I had gotten an upsetting phone call (no one died or anything, but still upsetting) right before I was to head out. For me, when I'm upset, my every instinct screams that I should sit on the couch with a pint of ice cream or bag of potato chips -- but I forced myself to go running instead. I

I did 15 sit-ups last night, and they felt a lot easier and lighter.
It is an off day cross-training thing I made up. Sit-ups, followed by push-ups, followed by squats, followed by jumping jacks, and so on. Sit-ups have been the most difficult. I can do them, just not as fun as they used to be
Soon the reps will go up to 20, then 25, and so on. Was just nice that the 15 finally felt easy.
