10k Turkey Trot
For the runners out there that read my blog and thought I had stopped running. I haven't. I've updated a couple of new PRs, including today's 10k. (The 5k PR wasn't from a race, just a whim one day to see how fast I could do it on my own.) I haven't done a whole lot of speed work since the spring and, though I've kept my long run at 10 miles, I've been doing more cross-training/upper body toning work than running, so I guess it was a bit of a miracle that I was able to shave almost a minute off of my 10k time from two years ago. (I didn't run the turkey trot last year, because at 6 weeks post-partum, I still had too much pain to run that distance.) With that difference in time, I was able to crack the top 10 of my age group and placed 9th out of 137. Not bad considering I wasn't feeling particularly fast or light this morning, in fact I felt a bit winded. Oh, and it was a bit windy at times. Happy thanksgiving!
