As I said in my last post, today it could be a good day, and it was! 🙂 This morning some races took place near my town and a few weeks ago I decided to enroll on a 7K race to prepare the race will run next week.
“It had no reason to be nervous. It was just a prep race“, I told myself … But this morning, before the race, I was nervous. All races are important. And it was. 🙂
Once the shot rang out, took me almost 2 minutes to start running and during this time I tried to visualize the entire race. I knew well the route and it was a plus for me. I started running at a very good pace, just how I had been training days ago. The first 3.5 K were down and I carried it very well. The last few miles were uphill. I went down the pace a bit, but trying not to lose time. Every second was important. Gradually, were spending the last kms and when I realized I had come to the last meters. I did a little sprint and finished the race.
I could not believe what I saw on the watch! I improved my mark on almost 5 minutes!
Another step in my own run. I am getting my goals and this makes my motivation is at the highest level.
Here, I share with you a picture I took at the end of the race. You can see my smile … my smile says: I got it!
And now is the time to focus on the next race. Only 7 days and I can not wait!
See you soon!! 🙂
