Unexpected 10k PB.

I am a simple person. I have been so unconfident about myself for a long time since every time I try a pace run, I failed or barely made it, and have been thinking that maybe this pace setting is wrong for me. Until today.

Today, I decided to do a 10k pace run at the track with 4:10 to 4:15 per k pace. Stuart ran with me and thanks to him, I could manage 4:10 pace all the way and we even speeded up a bit at the last 3k. (4:01 / 4:10 / 4:07 / 4:09 / 4:10 / 4:09 / 4:10 / 4:07 / 4:07 / 3:59)
As a result of this, I made a 10k PB, 41:14. So unexpected. Well, my previous PB was made 2 years ago and since then I have never done serious 10k race. Even so, I am happy, and now gained confidence again. I told you I am simple. What made me confident is the fact that I felt the pace was manageable all the way. Of course I had to try hard, but not like going all out.

So I decided to stick to the original plan and try hard to make the target.

Stuart, do you want to do 12k with me next week?

Keren the rival, I will beat you soon!!!!

Aya, そーなの。私の10kmPBは、2年前の41分46秒のままだったの。その後1度も真剣に10kmを走ってなかったの。だからまあ、PBが出て当然といえば当然。でも、PBはPBってことで。おほほ。:-P
