10k PR by 4 minutes!

So the training works!
I finished my 3rd 10k today with a time of 1:12:24...4 minutes, 13 seconds faster than last year! It wasn't until mile 5 that I saw the time clock and thought, OMG, I'm going to PR! My run felt EXTREMELY slow, but I must have been moving faster than I thought!

The leg/IT band did ok. It felt stiff throughout the run, but the pain never came! I am VERY happy about that!

See how happy I was!

Not sure what my training is going to look like after today. I have 5k in 6 weeks, so I might use the Smart Coach on Runners World and make a 5k training program. I need something to follow or I will loose all motivation!
Happy Running!

Congrats! Good for you! I'm going to be in the Iron girl 10k in Del Mar, CA next Sunday. I'm really excited about it. I haven't ran a 10k in many years. I used to do a 10 min. mile but now I think I run about a 12 min. mile. :( Just want to keep healthy knees, joints, etc. Anyway, keep it up and happy running!
