The 6 Hour Challenge course was 1.16 loop. Before the 5k, I did 2.33 warm-up miles. One was with a familiar face; Cassandra, I had met while volunteering at The Way Too Cool race. The other was with with the fabulous Katie. I then stepped away to run the 5k race. As everyone knows, my pace is nowhere near where it once was, or even where I like it to be. So, this was a competition against myself, pushing to eventually get back to my 5k PR which was a 21:35. .I couldn’t be happier with my performance finishing at 24 minutes exactly. I finished 7th female and 44th overall. I felt really good and happy that I am seeing progress! Back at the the 6 hour course which was right next to the 5k finish line, I then ran 5.33 miles more with the peeps! It was certainly a fun way to get my miles in at a well organized and supported run. The Race Director was a riot to boot and I enjoyed heckling with him. Overall, it was a great morning!
I am really pleased with my training this last week. I am currently building a base before I start up Marathon training for CIM.
Seeing my dailymile record makes me smile. 31 miles of running and one mile of swimming. I also did my core and stretching, but I need to also make time to get some yoga into the mix as well! It’s important after all!
Anyway, I end last week once again on cloud 9! Hooray!!!
