Okay, I know that habitual training will eventually make me faster, but I don't think it dawned on me that I would ever PR in a training run. Today was my second run with the new training plan and I just ran a 32:32 5k time. This is of course slow by normal standards, but I ran my last 5k in 32:46 which was also a PR for me. I think part of my problem was a mental block. For some reason I could never run an entire training run, then my coach told me I had to, and since then I haven't stopped once. We'll see how Saturday goes since that is a 4 mile run, but I'm happy with where I'm at at the moment. That isn't to say that I won't want more soon though. I always want more.
