Went out for my first run in a week today. I’ve been out of town and haven’t run since last Tuesday. I have a 5k race (The Tri Doc 5k) on Saturday and then a 10 mile race (Austin 10/20) on Sunday, so it was important to get some miles in today!
The weather was beautiful and my best running buddy knocked out the 5 miles with me! I felt pretty good the whole time. No pain anywhere. Not sure if I am ready to go 10 miles, but I’m not looking for a PR either. My training got off track because of the half marathon that got thrown into the mix back in February. When I ran the 10/20 two years ago my time was 1:47:14. If I can just get close to that, and hopefully not go over, I will be happy. I know I am capable because one of my 10 mile training runs, I ran a 1:35:55. I just plan on having fun and finishing this time around.
