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

September! My Month of PR Runs!

Not that July, or August weren’t filled with good runs – they were. Seems like in September, I kicked it up a notch, and was particularly good. I set five PRs during the month … all within a nineteen day span! Plenty chuffed with myself!

Do you remember – September?

Sept. 5 – 1M – 6:23

Sept. 6 – 10K – 45:12

Sept. 14 – 5K – 21:44

Sept. 16 – 4K – 17:05

Sept. 23 – 21.1K – 1:41:03

Mister Consistency

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!

my garbage run!

… 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 …

“you reduced” – Iqbal

… LOL!! First words of his mouth when he saw me, after being away for the past year. Bal’s back in Canada now, but was in Dubai – he’s from that part of the world. It made me laugh, his choice of words. Yes, I lost weight, slimmed down, am looking good, am healthier. Thanks for noticing!

Monday Morning Half Marathon!

I’ve been saying to myself for quite some time now, “one day I’m gonna go for my run, and run a half marathon”. That day never came, never came close … 12K was as far as I got. Even then, I was going through it in my mind, and I knew 100 minutes would be around my time (well, the time I wanted to achieve), but I also felt, I’d probably miss it by just a bit … and I did … 101 minutes & 3 seconds. Typically, I’m a bat outta hell type of runner, running fast from the start, so when I near home (8K), I stop. Today, I reigned in my pace from the beginning, I knew this would be the only way I’d ever run a half marathon. And at the 50 minute mark – what I perceive as the half way point, my audio cue had me at 10.64K … so I was well ahead of a sub 100 minute pace … and I kept up that pace for 13K … but as you can see from my 14K – 21K splits, I started slipping … slowly, not much … and again, at least all those splits were consistent. And check out those calories burned – 2384!!!! WHOA!!

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!

new 4K PR: 17:12
