I think it's time to set another goal PR. The 42k PR I achieved last July (5:11) was the result of weeks and weeks of hard and long training. I may have not reached my sub-5 main goal, but running that race with a mission and at the same time with confidence that I CAN run at my target pace without worrying of bonking (heavily) was a delight to play back in my head over and over again.
I have to say that it was really those 16 weeks of training seriously that made me ready for race day.
After watching the video below this morning, I may have been inspired again to start training seriously for a race.
My 21k PR stands at 2:14:16 which I achieved last Dec 2010 during the Milo Finals.
As I have not improved on that PR for 2 years since, I believe it's high time for me to get the training cycle rolling again to beat that time. That would mean digging deeper into a race pace that is much faster and possibly, more painful than that last one.
No pain, no gain.
