A goal was to break 1:40
B goal was to be under 1:42
C goal was to get a new PR (breaking 1:42:52)
I really didnt plan very well with logistics of what it would take to break 1:40. I FINALLY did the math yesterday on what my total avg pace would have to be...7:37. As you can see from above, I ended with a 7:40 pace, final time 1:41:00.
Although I'm proud to beat my old PR by just shy of 2 min, I did cry a little around mile 10 when I saw the 7:37 move to a 7:39 on my garmin.
I was so focused on that allusive 1:3x:xx that I actually felt like a failure when I realized I wasn't going to hit it. So, yes I do have a new PR under my belt, but its overshadowed by the "oh so close" ultimate 2013 goal for me.
I'll write a full recap when my mentality is in a little more positive- for now ill be wallowing in my jamocah milkshake while waiting for my flight.
Anyone else out there hard on themselves and have difficultly enjoying their accomplishments if its shy of what you truly are aiming for??
