This was a particularly good week for running. I was able to run at a local park on Monday and tread Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday. Total of 15.1 miles for the week. Tuesday was also a weight day. Hadn't done weights in many months and boy did I hurt for the next few days.
Sunday's run was a PR (personal record) of 3.6 miles at an average of 11:47/minute, beating my old PR of 12:08. I had been struggling to break through under 12 minutes for many months, so this was an exciting feat. I was also able to maintain a running pace for a half mile, beating my old long of 1/3 mile.
Monday's run at the park was on the same course as the Matzo Ball Run 5k that I'll be participating in this coming weekend. In December, I completed that course in more than 50 minutes. Monday's training was at 40:50. My goal is to break 40:00. Based on the Sunday breakout, I'm hoping that 39:59 will be a breeze!
