I ALMOST didn't run tonight. It's so much easier to come home and chill on the couch with the pup. But...my next 5K is in 11 days and now that I've set my bar with my finish time, I'm determined to beat it. The only way to do that is to keep training! Plus...I had some awesome new calf sleeves to try out.
|Now I can be seen!|
I chose to purchase the CEP compression calf sleeves, and they were great. I felt like they really helped keep my shins from throbbing both during and after my run. I do wish they were a little tighter down by my ankles, but maybe I need to look into some compression socks as well, just to have some options.
Overall I was pretty pleased with my run - I beat my race time by almost 2 minutes!! If I can keep that up I'll be ready for the Princess Half in no time. But - I know I need to take it one training run, and one race at a time.
My stupid app adds about 10 seconds to my time when I tell it to stop, so my time was actually 37:20
I just want to give a shout out to all the fabulous blogging ladies that I follow and congratulate them on their accomplishments - you are all doing so amazing and you're such an inspiration to me as well as your other readers. Keep up the great work and we'll reach our goals, one stride at a time.
Until next time,
