You are only as good as your last game!

I mentioned last week that I was on a roll with my running and that I had my fastest run ever, 10K under 48 minutes and it felt goooood. The thing is that we always tell the kids, especially Knut as he is doing travel hockey and soccer that we are very proud of them and we think that they are awesome and we let them thrive on the moment. But as soon as the moment is over we also tell them “you are only as good as you last game”. I can pat my own back a million times but that will take me nowhere, it is time to get over myself so I’ve set a new goal!

 I am going to run 10K under 45 minutes! Yes, I know it is 3 minutes faster and I know it will not happened this week but I am aiming for end of April. In fact I went for a run this morning. My plan was to run 6 miles but after 3 I knew I wasn’t able to keep the same tempo for another 3 as I am still very tired from yesterdays crazy workout. But I don’t give up that easy so instead of keep on running I started doing sprints at 9.5 m/h for a full minute (I was running for about 1.20 minutes in total) and then I walked for 30 sec for another two miles.

I’m not completely satisfied with todays work even though I worked my ass off. I guess I can for sure stop patting my back now as I was not even close to personal best but I will look forward and focus on my new goal!

    • I guess one of the reasons I was disappointed was because I came in to the gym with my mind already made up on what I was doing and I sort of failed. The workout itself was pretty intense and now my legs are aching lol…thanks for reading…
