Milestones

001 560x420 Milestones

Over the past few months I have really stepped up my running. I have been using a intermediate 5k training plan to help me stay on track and up my speed. After almost a month of training, I finally beat my biggest goal, run a 5k in under 30 minutes!  After a long weekend at the HLS, I wasn’t expecting to break any records yesterday. I actually felt tired after the first mile and a half. I felt tired, but I didn’t hurt. There were no cramps or pains coming from anywhere, it was just mentally challenging. Even though I felt tired I continued to mush on. I knew that the end result would be much greater than those 2 minutes of walking bliss. And it sure was! When I found out that I beat my previous time of 30:16, I was so happy!

It just proves to me that sticking with a plan and working your butt off really does give results. I can’t wait to see how things are when I finally sign up for my next 5k!  Any upstate NY people running any upcoming races? I would love a buddy to run with!

So not only was yesterday a big day for me running wise, but it was also my parents 26th wedding anniversary! Congratulations!
