I really went back and forth over whether or not I wanted to enter the Frosty 5 Miler this weekend. But in the end, I decided to go for it and I am super pumped I did! Not only because of my results, but they also gave out pretty cool long sleeve tech shirts.
After this race, I can tell a HUGE difference in my performance. It’s really only been a little over a month of targeted strength training but my legs are stronger. I powered through the hills and busted out an 8:26 pace, which is pretty freakin awesome for me. I finished the 5 miles in 42:13.
It was a pretty small, yet very competitive race. Most of the runners were faster than me, but I made a point not to let it get me down. Instead, I tried to use it as motivation to keep going. And I had a really great playlist which helped too.
