The weather has finally dropped to an amazing 60 degrees and I can say that I am loving every second of it. The hot weather has been going on for too long and with all the storms, rains, and hurricanes we finally got a break in the weather. So of course with this cold weather it also means that my running is getting better. A few weeks ago I ran a 10k (6.2 miles) and I actually got second place in my division. I thought that I wasn’t going to do all that well but as it turns out I did better than I had been doing all year long. That was just the beginning of the awesome times.
After that I continued to run but I only did 5ks. Those are three milers. Each time I have gone out to do a 5k run I have done really well. I went from running anywhere from twenty nine to thirty minute 5ks to doing twenty seven minute milers. From there it dropped again and got to a low twenty six miler. Yes twenty six. I haven’t ran anything like that since I ran the Timberlake race back in 2016. I don’t know why it’s taken as long as it has but I have finally broken past the nine minute milers.
This run I did finally broke my record for 5ks. It has made me feel so proud of myself. I am pushing more and more each time I go and I am so proud that I am where I am. I’m getting faster and faster and even though it’s taken a few years to finally break that nine minute mile I am glad that it finally has happened. Of course we will see if It will stick around. Only time will really tell but, I will say that for now I am going to enjoy it completely and fully.
