This past Saturday, I completed my longest training run ever — 10k!
- Duration: 52:59
- Average Pace: 5’15”
Clearly, Duolingo is not talking about Nix. 😸
This morning while I was in the middle of a benchmark run, Don’t Let This Feeling Fade, by Lindsey Stirling (which I posted about last week) came on.
I’m pushing myself to run as fast as I can. Lecrae delivers this line in the song…
And what if finish lines make us happy?
And right away, the Nike+ Run Club trainer cuts in…
There is no finish line!
I wish I could have recorded this! The timing was absolutely perfect. 😄
This song has been on repeat frequently since I saw Lindsey Stirling in concert the other week and has quickly become one of my training playlist favorites.
Tonight, my daughter and I completed our first official 5K in nearby Honeoye Falls! My wife and parents came out to cheer us on — it has been great having their support and encouragement. Thankfully, the rain ended up holding off, and we even enjoyed a root beer float afterwards with our favorite root beer, which is made right there in Honeoye Falls.
A month ago, we ran our first 5K, a runDisney Virtual Running Short 5K (you run whenever/wherever you want and submit your time).
It’s hard to believe that just three months ago we started training. I’m so proud that my daughter has stuck with this, even after training sessions when it has been difficult. It was fantastic to be able to share my first 5K experiences with her! Our next planned event is a few months away, right before Halloween (we have to start thinking of costumes to wear for that one!).
