So, I’ve been super discouraged training for this half, among other things in my personal life adding stress.
Anywho, my birthday was Wednesday and I got me some new Brooks shoes (Disclaimer: One of my best friends and running “coach” just started working for Brooks, he’s trying to convert me.). They are the Trance 12, and they are pretty.
I ran in them for an “Easy 3” yesterday afternoon and I was pleasantly surprised when my moving pace (street lights suck people) gave me a 5k PR!!! I actually ran the extra .1 on purpose which is not something I had been doing since moving to Omaha.
Needless to say, this small victory was enough to turn my frown upside down.
