It's hard to believe, but it's once again time for my 5 by 5th Virtual Run Series post. I managed to sneak in my 5 miles during my lunch break last Thursday.
You can't really tell from this picture, but I was covered in sweat. It was in the low 70's and really humid. Hard to believe that by the next morning it was 40 degrees. I guess we brought the cool temps from California home with us. It had been in the 80's while I was on vacation. Go figure right?
I was tired from the flight back from Long Beach, but desperately needed to get out and just run. I knew I was crunched for time, so I definitely pushed harder than I had intended. But, sometimes that works out right?
I'm not usually one to set hard and fast goals for myself. I have general ideas, but I'm not very goal-specific, especially when it comes to training. I think this has been a nice, unintentional way to reach a goal of increasing my pace though.
Goal setting or mini-challenges - Yay or Nay?
