SpiderMonkey Finishes a Training Plan

Was this your first race, or your first race in awhile? I'm wondering if it left you more susceptible to the cold? 

 

I agree, this is the faster feeling challenge I've ever done. Kinda cool actually as I'm in a switching gears mode so next challenge is excellently timed.

Nice looking bench.  Sorry you are sick.  If you are not shaking it then make sure you get some extra rest.  You can make up some mileage during the off week between challenges or just do more next challenge.  You have done excellent so far!

Nah, it's like, my seventh 5K, and I'd just done one about two weeks before. Maybe it's something in the weather, and the fact that I've already got allergy problems, and that colds just seem to be sweeping the area right now. It's still lingering, so maybe the timing is good to just take it easy and start the next challenge with a bang.

Thanks - it's still lingering. I'm going to just take it easy and not try to break any records or anything for the next couple of days. I've been planning to dig out my bike to pad the mileage a bit!

So I think I can cross off goal #1: to finish the training plan. My white whale was the thirty-minute run - it seemed IMPOSSIBLE when I started out. I struggled to get to the twenty-five minute run, then I sort of dialed back my training a bit after the 5K when I got my cold, so I switched gears to 1 minute intervals. Something in there clicked, because I went out for a run last night and ran for thirty-five minutes straight. Before I began, I decided to try for maybe fifteen minutes with the twenty & twenty-five minute runs looming like mountains in the distance, but when I got to fifteen minutes, I just wasn't tired and I thought I might actually be able to run the whole thing. I just didn't get tired. Like, at all. I wasn't out of breath. I only stopped because I got back to my car. I ran two miles straight. I feel like the six million dollar man. 

 

P.S. Thanks to Zombies, Run and Taylor Swift for helping me absolutely demolish this goal.
