Okay . . . that a HUGE overstatement!
But I am pretty pleased with my first 5k coming back! So let me brag a bit!!
Leading in to this first 5k my average pace has topped at 14:15 per mile. I've been trying to keep my efforts controlled. I'm keeping my heart rate less than 135 and generally taking it fairly easy! I figure I have a long, long time to build my strength back. So I'm talking it slow and easy.
But at the Mill 5k I decided to push it. Not crazy pushing it . . . but giving it a good go!
Results . . . I average about a 13:00 minute mile! I admit this is still a VERY slow pace! But to me I was screaming fast!! Okay . . . so I just improved some! But you have to celebrate your accomplishments as you can!!
Honestly I just really happy to be running some again!
