Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Been a couple weeks of easy running post marathon. A nice break it was.

Just because it’s nice to have goals, I have come up with a set of times I will be shooting for this year:

  • Mile: sub 6 min
  • 5k: sub 19:30 min
  • 10k: sub 40 min
  • Half: sub 90 min

Challenging but realistic. Small steps towards bigger goals in the future.

Ran this morning at Nawamin Pirom park. A better than average weather just before 8 am. This park is nice when it’s not too hot. Nevertheless, the run was not easy. Despite having breakfast beforehand, I had no energy in the legs after about 5 km. Still able to keep jogging on and got in 10 km. Good thing I wasn’t racing today. Probably just not enough sleep lately.

  3. […] 40 min 10k is not easy. Perhaps the hardest of my four goals. Another possible obstacle is what might be an injury. Left foot hurts a little bit underneath, […]
