I’ll just come right out and say it: this past week was one of the best training weeks I’ve ever had! It was full of lots of highs, especially since my three runs this week were some of the fastest that I’ve ever run. And to top off a great week of training, I had a lot to celebrate over the past week, including:
I set a new 5k PR on Monday and a new 10k PR on Saturday
Saturday marked my one year blogiversary
My birthday was yesterday and we spent the weekend celebrating
I know that not all weeks will be like the one I just had, so I’m trying to relish and enjoy my runner’s high and the excitement of sharing my birthday with close friends. This coming week I’ll be keeping it easy on the running front as I finish preparing for the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run next Sunday.
