What do you think of my new banner? I made it yesterday using PicMonkey and it took about a whole whopping 5 minutes!
I’m currently on Week 5 of the 10k trainer app by Zen Labs, and Day 26 of the Runner’s World Run Streak (#rwrunstreak). Ten days to go!
I’ve spent the last couple months or so working on speed, and by redoing C25k/10k it’s really been working!
I’ve been consistently running a lot faster than my usual 10-12 minute miles (as you can see below), and even got my latest “magic mile” down to 8:21! It’s been over 3 years since I’ve seen an 8(ish) minute mile!
While I’m excited to have improved my pace/speed, I’ve also noticed that I don’t look forward to my runs as much anymore.
It could be burnout from running every single day, or it could be overkill on the speed-work. The 10k training is only 3 days per week, so maybe I need to slow back down for the rest of the week. Or maybe I just have the holiday blues and feel like whining about something ;)
