The perfect day to break a PB! For months now I have been trying, to no avail, to break the 2 hour mark for a half marathon run. My best time was 2:02:03 admittedly, I managed to shave a half minute here and there along the way. Well, after all this time I did it!! In fact I pulverised it!! Seven minutes off!
I kept looking at my watch in complete disbelief! I even let out a very loud “hells yes!” and startled a poor woman who was starting her own run.
Why now? Why 7 freaking minutes? I am not sure but I will put three things into this great big win column. First, no alcohol for three weeks. Second, more plant based protein. Third, MOUNTAIN, tons of it! Oh I will add fourth, I sleep every night since moving out of my old place.
Overwhelmed! Can’t stop smiling!!
I even stopped to take two pictures!
Oh yeah, speaking of smiles! Today’s ROS rate was 18/23! 😃 yesterday’s morning run was so early I only got a 2/3, not many people running at 6:30 and my evening run was a 1/1 as I only came across a mountain biker on one trail. So, remember to smile when you’re out there!! 😊
That’s me a few years ago, and yes both pints were for me! It’s a little dark but you can kind of see the spare tire around the middle, and the fatty cheeks.
Or this one…
Compare to yesterday’s selfie…
Woot woot! Well that’s my Saturday. Have to see if I can move tomorrow, in which case mountain time!
Be good! Happy trails!
