I woke up early to get in my run before the rain storms, but of course I didn’t get out until 10 am. It certainly wasn’t cool and cloudy like they predicted either. It was HOT and muggy. My training plan had 6 miles listed for the day and so I thought it would be a great idea to test my 10K time.
I have never done an actual 10K race, but had gone that distance a lot during my half marathon training last year. Surprisingly, my 10K PR came from the half marathon I did in the fall which was 50:46.
My dreams of a new PR quickly went out the window at mile 3 when I was running in direct sunlight with little to no breeze.
All I kept thinking was, “I should have just gone for my run when I woke up.”
I still finished strong and only missed my PR by about 10 seconds which was a little bittersweet. I finished in 50:57. I’m still proud of my run and will work even harder towards my goals. I’ve come a long way in the last few weeks and am excited to see where I’ll be in the next few weeks.
