I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Goin’ 4K Krazy!

I PRed it last day of August, with what I thought was unapproachable time for at least awhile. I was wrong! I busted out, running hard the whole way, bettering my mark by nine seconds … that’s HUGE! I know my 1mile runs are helping me tremendously, teaching me to establish a quick pace … and then I try like hell to maintain it for the duration of my run. Man, still stoked (was yesterday’s run – am one day late posting) … after my recent 10K (3 days earlier), this def ranks as my second best run! Run Dan, run!

11 days in a row

… 88 kilometers!! This morning was VERY cold – minus three w/ windchill … tuque and gloves were mandatory. While it wasn’t my fastest time, something about today’s run made it the best so far (RunKeeper even gave me two new records – distance & calories burned, lol), I was well within myself despite the frigid/windy conditions, I did quicken my pace and my final 3K were strong. Also, I’ve noticed that forcing myself to run every day, has pushed me past the point of where my body constantly feels beaten to shit … no more lingering soreness, tight muscles … no more strained hammies, pulled groin … quads are pain free too. I know eventually, I’ll need a break, I’ll hit the wall … just might not tell y’all though, lol!
