Summer Virtual 10K Race Recap
I recently started a board on Pinterest for virtual runs and I will pin there whenever I hear of one. Please note, this is a new board and I may need a kick in the butt every now and then to remember to post. At least, until the habit is established.
Now onto the virtual run. This was my second run for the virtual races being hosted by Toni at Running, Loving, Living. I ran the 5K on Tuesday (you can read about it HERE) and the 10K yesterday.
Unfortunately, my legs weren't as into it as I would have hoped and I started off slower than desired. I decided getting the miles in was better than focusing on speed especially since I didn't want to negatively impact my overall training. But I still wanted to do my second race in my back-to-back race plan even if I wasn't going 110%. I ended up running a progressive 10K and by the end, I was nice and speedy. I don't know where that came from but it is always great when it happens. A run that started out yuck ended awesome and just proves I should never give up when things feel yuck. I ended up completing my run in 51:14 with an average pace of 8'14". I am happy.
Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for rain.
Daily Affirmation: I am getting stronger each day.
