A PR at 10K

It’s one day from the end of December and I am determined to end it having run 100 miles in the month. As of this morning, I was 8 miles from hitting that milestone, so I wanted to get a good run in.  Today while my son was at a baseball camp, I ran on the track at the high school holding the camp. I can report that I get bored to tears running on a track, but I did manage to beat my previous best time at 10K.  In November I ran a 1:04:24 at the Thanksgiving Day Race 10K.  Today on a high school track, I ran a 57:56.  Not official, but it was nice to get it done under an hour.  I’ve watched a slow but steady increase in my pace this month.  I feel like I’m making a bit of progress.

For the curious, this is what boredom looks like.

The full report is here.

Now I only need to get a short two miler in tomorrow and I’ll hit the 100 mile mark for December.  A great way to end the year.

  1. Congrats on a great run! Your pace is REALLY improving!

    I think running laps on the track is just as boring as the treadmill, so BRAVO to you!!
