10k Training in Stadtwald Giessen: 12 & 21 Jun 2009

12 Jun 2009

Distance: 3mi
Time: 29:19
Pace: 9:46
Notes: Ah, perfect running weather: 65 with a cool breeze.

21 Jun 2009

Distance: 3mi
Time: 30:53
Pace: 10:18
Notes: What a run. We got all suited up and as we were preparing to leave our apartment, it started to drizzle. We decided to go ahead. After all, you cannot control the weather on race day, so we wanted to be prepared. But as our run progressed, the rain got heavier and heavier. Here I am, avoiding puddles like the plague. Who wants sloshy shoes? But Rob was happily dancing through them. “I think I’m faster in the rain!” I heard him exclaim through the drippy-drops. He thus earned the nickname Rob “The Croc” Mueller, because crocodiles are faster in the water than on land, just like my wet-running hubby!

      @lifestudent: Ha ha, everyone’s different. I know you can do it! Just keep it all in perspective once you’ve finished; make sure your response to your result is in keeping with how much training you put in, and don’t get too down on yourself if you don’t perfom as awesome as you’d like to. We can’t all be super fast like Edward! :D
