10K PR at the Baseball Fields

I'm pretty excited about this. I have never ran(to my knowledge) a 10K under 1 hour. I just never put forth the effort to keep up a decent pace.

Wednesday I did a 10K. It was unintentional and I just kept saying, "Well why not do another mile?" When I hit the 5.3 mile mark I realized that I could possibly get it under a one hour mark. I ran hard, but didn't make it.

So Friday I set out to do it. Here's the RunKeeper. I basically ran it at a pace that I could still sprint out of but I definitely wasn't running slow(to me at least :P). By the fifth mile I knew I had it because I was only at ~45 minutes. Regardless, I tried to pick up the pace on the last mile: 1) to ensure I would make it and 2) because I enjoy it.

So that's it. I feel good and know I am ready for the Peachtree Road Race. I just have to maintain now and maybe get more used to the distance.
