My humble correction....
My race time yesterday was not a PR. It wasn't even close. That number above - 49:13 - that's it. That was December of last year. Ten months later - on a course that I'm pretty sure was easier than the holiday run - I ran slower.
That's what happens when you get complacent. When you question where you want to go. I let go of running this summer. Not completely - but just about. I stopped my long runs and barely got in the short ones. I wasn't sure it was for me. I didn't think I was enjoying it the way all other runners seem to.
If you ask me if I like running - I generally say not really - what I love is the sense of accomplishment I get from it. Well.....when I'm running slower now than I was almost a year ago - where's the accomplishment?
Don't get me wrong - I'm not giving up. I'm fired up. I WANT to get better, faster - LEANER.
This was just the kick in the arse I needed.
