Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! This weekend completely flew by, but I feel like I got a lot accomplished!

Training

This weekend was the official start of my spring training! My coach had me sign up for a Valentine’s Day 5K to get an idea on where I was at with my race times. I knew going into this race I’d be slower than I was last year – I’ve been averaging 1-2 minutes slower than my usual pace during training runs during the winter. Race day was COLD! I’ve been getting used to running in the cold, but this was brutal. The temperature was -3 but windchill was -30. Ouch.

This year I have a few more goals:

Planning Ahead to 2015

Good morning! The past month has been hectic, to say the least. Between Thanksgiving, vacation and getting a new job (woohoo!) I haven’t had much time to do anything else. I’m in a slight break between everything before I start my new job so I had some time to begin to think of my 2015 goals. Last year I set a goal to break a 20 minute 5K and got somewhat close. I think 2015 will be the year the sub-20 minute 5K happens.
