NYC Marathon Training - The Compromise 

I did not want to get out of bed this morning. Truthfully, it has been a struggle this past week or so. I’m hitting snooze more and more and this is cutting into my running time.

Today, I made a compromise with myself: get out of bed and only run a 5k. I reluctantly put on my running shoes and headed out the door.

It was a beautiful day. Once I got to Prospect Park, I was feeling strong (I knew it too when I looked down at my watch and it read a 7:15 pace!)

Ultimately, I ended up PR’ing across the board. 1 mile PR at 6:52 and 5K PR at 22:32.

Not bad for a compromise.
