Per the plan, I was supposed to run a 5K today.
The issue? I was not in my best mental state this morning. I was tired, sore and still feeling my cold a bit. Also, I was still down over my discovery yesterday – and feeling a bit tubby since I over-ate on Saturday.
But, I pushed myself out there this morning at 9:30 AM anyway – and figured anything was better than nothing. What happened?
I ran the 3.1 miles in 25 minutes and 15 seconds.
That’s my personal best time, to date, for running a distance of 5K. It beats my old mark by 5 seconds.
I felt like I was going to puke when I was done. But, after that passed in a moment, I was feeling pretty good about today’s results.
