Ugh. I hate even writing this post because I feel like I’m falling so short of my original goal. Original goal was a sub 60:00 10K. New goal looks pretty different.
New goal: Just a PR. Current PR is 1:05:25 so anything under 1:05 is good by me. Did I mention the PR was set back in 2004? Whoops.
The weather is supposed to be pretty awful and I just don’t know how that’s going to factor in to things. At this point, I think I’d rather it be actually raining than just 90% humidity.
My current PR pace is 10:33. I’ve done a few 5 milers lately holding an 11ish pace. My last 6 miler was in March at an 10:46 pace. I’ve had two sub 10:15 runs, but they were both back in December and January. So I think the probability to PR is there. If I can keep a 10:15, I’ll do a 1:03ish. I think that’s the new goal I have. Start out at 10:15 and just hold that as long as I can.
I’ve just been distracted by the triathlon training and by bootcamp and by life in general. I haven’t kept the goal the goal and I think that’s going to show tomorrow. We’ll see.
