Mismatched PR's (Read 257 times)


&*^%$#@$#

    I went from being a decade long alcohol fuelled couch potato last fall, to trying to run a couple of miles without cardiac arrest last winter, to actually running consistently this summer. I ran my first 10 mile race ever this morning and finished at 1:15:04 (7:30/mi), which is nothing to write home about, but I found it amusing that my 5k PR is 27:01 (8:42/mi) from a little less than three months ago (and yes, I was trying). Needless to say, that 5k PR is gonna' get crushed next time I run one. I signed up for the Twin Cities Marathon this fall and that has been motivating me to get out on the road, even on those mornings that my body says no. Sorry to bore everyone with my story, but it is nice to see results starting to show from the work.

      Excellent 10miler.  I envy you ... you've got a whole bunch of racing to do to fill out your race 'resume'.  Go get 'em!

        This is really cool. I'm a fairly new runner too and its amazing seeing progress over such a short amount of time. The first time I ran 5 miles I was ecstatic. It took ever and hour. Today I ran a bit over 8 at an easy pace in a bit over an hour. You've got a good amount of speed in ya. I'm sure it'll feel great when you crush your 5k PR. Good luck on your marathon training!

          GREAT job!!!

            I'm right there with you too.

            Check out my 8 miler PR Pace versus my Marathon PR Pace.

            It's a good feeling

             

            Congrats on your improvement.

              Actually, yeah, that IS something to write home about.  A 1:15 10-miler so soon is plenty respectable.

                My first HM was 1:49:27 on 8/12, first M was 3:39:29 on 2/13.  So basically I had the same pace for my HM as I did for my M.

                 

                I ended up running a 1:32:27 HM on 5/13. Big grin

                5K: 18:43 (12/13) 10K: 42:50 (12/12) HM: 1:30:10 (3/14) M: 3:39:29 (2/13)
