As a marathon training program coach, I need to always be on top of my game. I was a little nervous today as it was my first time running over the 10K distance and I was supposed to be leading others! I was very blessed today because I was able to crank out 9 miles at an average 10 minute mile pace, which was good enough for me to hang with a cool group of ladies without too much huffing and puffing. The rain soaked us, but it really felt amazing. I always dread rainy runs but I always end up having a great time!
It was also nice to see friends. Everyone has been really supportive and encouraging - even coaches need that from time to time! We're just runners, just like any other runner.
I'll be teaching a lot of extra classes early this next week, but I also have runs planned for Monday and Tuesday, and lots of hiking planned for later in the week! I find it helpful to plan everything ahead of time so I don't talk myself out of it :)
Now off to get some school assignments done and learn the July releases of Group Centergy and Group Power!
