My goals going in were pretty simple; finish, don't walk at all, and (in my craziest dreams) PR. If you read this blog, you know two weeks ago I had an amazing training run at 8:30-9:30 mile pace for six miles. I still don't know how I did it! Last night I looked back on Lose It! to see what I ate the night before that run, and ate a similar meal. I got a good night of sleep and was feeling pretty good, albeit nervous at the starting line. My first mile came in at 9:25. Sadly, that was my fastest mile. I got a severe pain in my left leg, which is still present when I walk. I can say that this race was at least as hard as my first couple of 5Ks. Which I guess makes sense, since it was the first time increasing the distance. I am so undecided on what to do for next year now, as I was planning on signing up for four half marathons through Team Ortho. I was a bit bored (thanks to Fit Radio crapping out on my half way through AGAIN. I have uninstalled that ap for the second time!) with just six miles and that's not even a quarter marathon (a half marathon is 13.1 miles, full is 26.2). I have to decide soon, as the first half would be on New Year's Day.
