Yesterday I ran my fastest 10K! It was super exciting and I think it is because of my confidence from completing my second marathon and from all my boot camp conditioning classes I have been going to. I felt great and I was able to maintain a 8:45 pace. I usually run at about a 10:00 pace so this is way faster! I shaved more than 6 minutes off my last 10K time!
I ran with Jana which was super fun because it brought back all those marathon training memories. And, guess what? We are both going to be doing winter marathon training because we are both running the Nashville Marathon in April! I can't wait! Winter training starts January 2nd. It is going to be super cold. Yesterday was super cold as well and it went great so that gave me confidence that running in the cold will be totally doable.
I did have the issue yesterday of not having any winter running gear! I work leggings and a longsleeve shirt with a jacket over it. It was a pretty lame running outfit. I'll have to look for some actual running clothes so that I am ready for winter training!
