I ran a 10k on Sunday morning! It was my first race of 2012. I was technically supposed to run a 15k race this weekend, according to my training plan. But it's too hard to find a 15k race that's nearby and I never did the 10k race that I was supposed to do.
As you can see, I went out way too fast (they started the 5k at the same time.. so it was hard not too). I got to mile 1 and I was like "oh no.. too fast." Then I kind of got consistently slower. And I probably wouldn't know it was that bad if it wasn't for the Garmin. And I also wouldn't know that the course was a little short. I guess you can round 6.17 to a 6.2? Can I still say this is my 10k PR? I decided yes. Some may disagree. Oh well. That's the blessing and curse of the Garmin, I suppose.
Weather was beautiful. We ran at 9am, which I was really glad for because of the time change. I think it was about mid-40s. And later got up to 65. Spring is here! I've decided to not worry about global warming and just enjoy it. I got a pedicure (only the second ever in my life) to treat myself because of my good race. The part where she massaged my sore calf muscles was amazing.
And I walked around in the grass barefoot.
The flowers are coming up! Spring is basically here! I'm 3 weeks away from my first half marathon! My hubby is coming home soon for R&R! My toenails are pretty! Yay!
