Well, I am blown away with how this run went. I thought my pace wasn’t there. I thought it would be hard to hold a 9 minute mile for the 7.5 miles I was running. But no. (and in case the title of this blog post didn’t give it away – I came out of it with two PRs!).
The HBF Run for a Reason holds 3 events, a half marathon, a 12km, and a 4km. As you know, I chose the 12km. I decided I didn’t want to train for another half marathon, but I did want to push myself to go a little faster. The 12km was ideal, as it is an automatic PR- I’ve never run a 12km before. I was almost going to drop to the 4km run, my friend talked me out of it (quite easily) and I didn’t think I had done much serious speedwork to get me a 4km PR.
