5K PR at Home!

Hey!  I’m officially on week 7 of my training plan and feeling great!! I was sick during weeks 5 and part of 6, so I’m finally feeling healthy!  Woo hoo!  No long run for week 6, just a 3.1.  However, I’ve never actually tried to race the 3.1 … so I decided to push it!

I started with an easy 1 mile warm up since I missed one of my mid-weeks.  I did a 1 mile cool down after the 5K to finish with 5.1 miles.

My best time so far!! I’ve NEVER had a good 5K race… I always go out too fast and blow up.  I know this isn’t an official “PR”  … so it would be my personal best? PB?  I really want to start pushing myself on some of the mid-week runs to work on speed.  I just barely broke 2 hours last year at the Nike half, so I’m hoping to beat that!!

Baby girl waits for me in her play pen while I run.  Can’t wait to take her out in her jogging stroller for a run together! :)  I know… I’m crazy.

  1. Bella looks so big there! Congrats on a great run :)

  2. Congrats on a strong, fantastic run! Hopefully this means great things for you in your race :)

  3. Don’t worry! I live in King of Prussia and I see a lot of puppies/dogs in strollers/joggers at Valley Forge National Park. Very common there. And a great workout for all ! Enjoy!!!

  4. Personal bests are always so encouraging – I love to watch my time get faster. It makes running seem exciting again!
