The bright spot of the weekend was running a 10K on base. I set a new PR! I have been running with E to increase my sustained pace. Unfortunately we were only running 3 miles so I wasn't sure how I would do doubling the distance. I knew I could run for the time I wanted because I have done it a few times during training runs, but I have never done it in a race. I struggle mentally in races. I decided to use positive mantras during the race, and tell myself that I was capable. It worked. The race is timed, but they only have gun time and not a separate chip time. If you go by my watch (which would equal chip time) I set the new PR by over 2 minutes! It took me 25 seconds to cross the start line so my official time shows a PR of a minute and a half. It isn't a huge drop in time, but my old PR was set in November 2013. It was time for the record to fall. Plus it was a warm day which made the race more difficult. E pushed the girls in the double stroller, and still finished minutes ahead of me!
We don't really celebrate Easter, but the girls did dye eggs. Here is a picture of them before we started:
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
