I tried hard not to go to fast at the beginning or even during the whole race because I knew that after the 10K I still had 2 more miles to go on my long run day. It was pretty tough to stay at a consistent pace because I kept wanting to go faster because I was feeling pretty good! But I did the smart thing and didn't speed up.
Me, Leslie and Zoe after the Race!
I finished the 10K in 62 minutes and then went on to finish the last 2 of my 8 miles on the schedule. It was a tough day but it was an accomplishment to say the least. My first 10K race and the farthest mileage I have ran. So far training has been going great. It has been fun to be back on the streets running again and really enjoying it this time! I am trying not to think about time's just thinking about not walking. I mean obviously I have a time in mind that I would like to finish in, but I don't want to harp on that and get down on myself if I don't make that. Just finishing the half marathon and not walking is my biggest goal... :)
