I PRed!! I ran the Adidas Half Marathon this weekend and PRed with an official time of 1h 36 min and 13 sec. My previous PR was 1h 37 min (I don´t know with how many seconds) but I shaved about one minute off my previous time. My average pace for the race was 4 min and 31 sec /km and I couldn´t be happier. It was a great race since I felt strong, finished strong and didn´t feel any pain or discomfort throughout the race. I can truly say I enjoyed it the whole time.
It was very nice to have my mom right there cheering me on when I crossed the finishing line. She snapped this picture of me right when I finished.
While I ran the Half Marathon, the Husband ran 10k with Maia in the stroller. We just bought a new jogging stroller (the BOB) and I´m loving it; such a difference with the old one! It was Maia´s first race.
After the race we went to breakfast at Starbucks with my parents and I had my favorite banana muffin with a chai soy latte. I love Starbuck´s muffins but try to enjoy them every once in a while since they are pretty caloric.
On the fitness front, my next race is the New Balance 15k which isn´t until July 7th (about 6 weeks away), so I plan to take it easy this week (I´ve been doing some light jogging) and next week (cross training) and start training the week after that. I want to give my body some time to rest and recover.
Today is my last day at work and I´m having some mixed feelings. I know it´s the best decision for me, but I´ll miss my co-workers. I´m picking up Maia at her daycare and spending the afternoon with her- haven´t done that in a while! We´re going out for fro-yo at Pinkberry and just having some mommy-daughter time.
Tomorrow is my BIRTHDAY!! I´m turning 26 and have a great, relaxing day ahead of me. I´m having lunch with the Husband at my favorite sushi place, relaxing at the spa with a gift card I got a while back and going out to dinner with my family at night- I´m so grateful and couldn´t ask for more!
Hope you´re having an amazing week!
