Almost a 10K PR (Read 758 times)

    My PR for 10K (as an adult) is 46:18 in 2004. Today I did a 6.1-mile tempo run (0.11 miles short) in 42:45. I think it's safe to say I'm faster now than 4 years ago. I guess I should sign up for an actual race and get a new official time to beat. My goal when I was in high school was to run a 10K at 6-minute pace (37:17). I got as low as 38:32 and did a 9.9-km (not miles as previously indicated) relay leg in 37:30, but then I went to college and got lazy and a bit overweight. Fast-forward to current day: It's not that it haunts me or anything, but I think that I'm finally disciplined enough to dust off my old goal and make a run for it (no pun intended) even though I'm 15 years older and 25 pounds heavier. I'll take it one step at a time, aiming for a sub-40 10K in 2009, and then see where I go from there. Does anyone else out there dream of beating their old high school track or cross-country times?

        I do! Oh, wait. I didn't run in high school. Undecided I guess every record I set is better than high school. Big grin

        I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.

          Holy sheet. You must have beaten several world bests on your way to that beauty. I don't think you'll ever get back to running at that speed.

            Nice catch, Purdey - I've corrected it to indicate KMs instead. You're right, I doubt I'll ever be that fast.
