Decided I needed to do a little tempo run today. I was going to go 8 and tempo 4 of it but I had a hard time peeling the mattress off my back with all the crap I ate yesterday. Did the first 1.5 normal to easy Then I did 5k a bit faster; 7:14, 6:56, 7:07, .57 (.14 miles). For just over a 22 minute 5k. Not too bad but it felt more difficult than I hoped.
Lately I've been feeling slow. My nephew recently broke 5 min for the mile (4:57) which is super awesome and he's going to be a junior next year. My best was 5:02. I know that running trails is my passion more than speed but there is part of me that wants to be able to run really fast or far on any given day.
I've been thinking about this more lately because I received an email inviting me to pace the Top of Utah marathon again this year. Part of me wants to do it to help others and redeem myself for last year but the part of me that wants to be fast would rather just run the race to try to attempt a PR or at least a decent time. If I pace, it will most likely be my slowest mary so far.
Sorry about the rambling. Just some of the thoughts in my head these days. Have a great day everyone!
