December Mile A Day Update

5 Dec

Yes, I realize it is only December 5th, but I still felt like I needed an update. I have run/walke  4 of the first 5 days of this month covering a total of 8 miles! The reason I didn’t run yesterday was because a gentleman with the title DOCTOR in front of his name told me not to. I kinda try and listen to those guys.

Anyway, today I ran a mile on my own before meeting up with a friend to cover another 2 miles walking. Since I have a 5k race on Sunday I knew that I needed to up the running I was doing this week so that I didn’t fall face first into the sand. Today’s run was just shy of a mile and it felt pretty darn good. And ya know what is the best part about my mile run? THIS!

Pace 12-5-12

 

 

 

 

 

That is right ladies and gentleman, my slow self ran at a 10’47″ per mile pace today. Do you have any idea how awesome that is? Do you realize that if I could hold that for 3.1 miles on Sunday that I will PR that race? I would PR my first race back after an injury!

Now I know what you are thinking, don’t get ahead of yourself Meghan. And I’m not. I know there is a good chance that I could hold that pace for a mile or maybe even two, but three? HA HA HA HA. Now that is some funny stuff. As I mentioned before, I just want to make sure that I don’t land face first in the sand. Thankfully my friend that I’m running with on Sunday is a tad faster than me and has agreed not to let me drag ass too much. I told her that if she needs to drag me across that finish line by my hair she is totally allowed to. Hopefully that won’t happen because I’d end up with a KILLER case of road rash on my hinney.
