Personal Best On My 6 Today!
I hit a PR today!
It was crazy ThunderStorms all day in CNY!
I opted to hit the Gym with my Husband this afternoon.
I did a 1/4 mile warm up and then a good stretch!
Then I set the treadmill to a 7.1 which is like a 8:28 mile or something.
So I rode that out till mile 4.8 and then sped up that bad boy and till I was running around a 7:42 pace and then ran that out till I hit mile 6~! For the first time EVER, I actually thought I was going to fall off the treadmill from exhaustion! LOL. Seriously honorable efforts on my part....I was the goofy blonde huffing and litterally puffing out the last half mile at that pace....I thought for sure I'd lose my footing about a thousand times. I'd ride up the treadmill and slack back down the belt and then I'd drop my shoulders and dig and realizing my ill form due to pure exhaustion I stand up taller and correct myself and keep pushing!
A little PrideFul tear for myself after that run! Yes in the middle of the gym..panting like a Lioness Gone Mad...I did a baby tear for my Monster Effort! Supa'Proud!
6 Miles in 49:50! Overall Pace: 8:18 per mile..... KABOOM!
