I came home from work today and this was sitting on top of the mail pile. I knew immediately what it was…
My first heavy medal from the Rock ‘n’ Roll series!
“Congratulations! You’ve completed two half marathons. To reward your efforts we would like to present you with the 26.2 Mile Award as a testament of your ‘rockin’ accomplishment.”
It’s a nice large, hefty medal. I was excited to add it to my medal collection, but didn’t feel quite the same thrill as when receiving a medal after finishing a race.
July 21 – 3 miles (Asics)
So I went to the track tonight for a mini speed workout. I started with a one mile run, then a set of 4 x 400s, then another one mile run.
- Mile 1 – 11:26
- 1st 400 – 1:57
- 2nd 400 – 2:05
- 3rd 400 – 2:00
- 4th 400 – 2:06
- Mile 3 – 11:31
It’s been a while since I pushed myself like that. It was a good reminder of what it feels like to really work hard.
