Friday morning 4K was a good run. Not crazy fast, but fast enough … but more importantly only 2 seconds separated all four kilometers. And since I ran my 4K run today, it also gave me a crack at my 1mile run … and yep, you guessed it – 6:30. Mister Consistency indeed!
… garbage day, recycling day run. Something comforting, relaxing … mentally preparing myself for my morning run as I’m walking back and forth, taking all my bins, garbage to the curb. Was a great run, felt strong, missed my PR by under 50 seconds … check out my last few splits. Had my playlist on repeat song, and of course I don’t dare waste time trying to correct it … was flying w/ Linkin Park‘s Somewhere I Belong blaring in my ears for 36 minutes and 33 seconds for those 8K …
… for about a week now. didn’t help i overextended myself with my
stupidity stubbornness trying for a new distance record. i swear, not only did i pull my hammie (same one), i fucked up my achilles (i think it’s my achilles? it’s around the back/outside of my ankle … and with my daily running – it ain’t gettin’ any better). i really needed this today! a sub 18 minute 4k (24 seconds shy of a pr) … and quickening my pace with each successive split!
quickening splits. sweet!
… PLEASE!! Twenty days straight now for those keeping track … 160km (+2) = 162 f’nK total y’all!! I need a break, my body is CRYING/PLEADING/BEGGING for one … I even promised myself I wouldn’t get-up-and-giddy-up tomorrow morning … but something tells me, that’s a promise I won’t keep … on the bright side, despite my sore, poor aching body, equalled my best ever 4K time this morning … rundanrun …
… lowered my mark for the third successive timed run with a personal best … 57.8 seconds. AND, finally obliterating that stubborn sub minute barrier in the process … but honestly can’t see much more improvement. I’m hopeful to go below 55 seconds eventually … even that’s a lofty goal … only time will tell!! 😉
