First Long Run

 

Its been a while since I’ve been to Nike Run Club because of the holidays and stuff so I signed myself up to go this week. This week I have been doing well with all my scheduled workouts and going to bed at a reasonable time. I haven’t been to a speed run event so I wasn’t sure what we would be doing. It gave me flash backs of went to Nike Run Club in Taipei. Where we did some speed work or interval training around a track. I’m still not 100% sure what we did on the track, but yes running was involved. For the speed run we jogged to the Rose Bowl then we did a few laps around this section of the Rose Bowl. Afterwards we ran back to the Nike Store. In total for me it was about 6.85 miles. My very first long run. I’ve ran a few 10ks, but have never really done any run over 5 miles on my own training. Even though this night wasn’t about the miles I feel accomplished that I ran over 6 miles. I guess one thing that helped was that I wasn’t exactly sure what we would be doing. I mean I knew what we would be doing, but since I’ve never been to a speed run I didn’t know where we would be running to. Also I’ve realize that running in a group has been very helpful for me. Running with a group forces me to keep up with the group and I feel more focused surrounded by like minded people. I’m glad I went to run club. I was contemplating not going, but I told myself stop thinking about it and go. Normally when I run myself I’m either fidgeting with my playlist mid-run or just counting down the minutes. NRC4 Finally I have a funky photo of myself running. When I run races or run club I’ll usually smile or pose for the camera. Hahaha, but this time I wasn’t even paying attention even though I knew there would be cameras. If anyone in the San Gabriel Valley or surrounding areas is looking for a good run club you should definitely check out Nike Run Club Pasadena.
