In an effort to see where I am sitting for Saturday's Heart of Savannah 5K, I decided to run the course last night.
I hit the first mile at 8:10 and felt pretty good. Around the park, chase some runners and hit the 2 mile mark at 16:44. Lost a little steam but was still moving well. As I was about 2 1/2 miles in I just keep telling myself, "Hold on, fast turnover" I looked at my watch at about the three mile mark and saw 25:04. "Push, last 1/10 of a mile!"
What? Beat my PR by a minute in a non race situation?
High five's all around! Cheeseburgers and milkshakes for all of my men!!!
I am going to destroy my current PR on Saturday! Thoughts of my PR's from my early 20's are starting to creep back into my head, but let's not get ahead of ourselves...
One foot in front of the other, one step at a time...
