On Sunday, I basically crossed that finish line smiling more than ever, happy about the result. As soon as I checked my time, however, I thought I could do it faster. I am an ambitious person, you know that. Anyway, that was literally my first thought, therefore I believe I was pretty ready to face a half marathon.
I had been thinking about my running journey after London for a while, but now I really don’t know what to do, because London is over, my medal is hanging with the others and I have no specific plan. Of course there is the #WeRunMilano 10k and maybe I can even make it for the #WeRunLondon (but that would actually happen only if I can be sure to stay under the 5’/km pace. YES, That’s the condition. I’m not going to race in London with a bloody 6’/km again).
Such a cool idea was to run 100 days, like Kyrstie (and I think many others) did. Well, that could be fun, but is it really the best option for me? Would I be happier by doing this? I’m not sure. My idea is to work on my pace. I know I can keep a pretty good pace on short distances, not on longer distances. I basically believe this is the key point of my running journey. My goal is to run 12km in less than one hour. This would be pretty intense, but no pain no gain.
However, before taking a final decision on what to choose as my next goal on my running journey, I’m gonna talk with the running people I trust most. We will figure out what’s better for me. For now I’m just laying in bed, looking outside the window, wondering why I am not feeling like running anymore. I bought new gear in London, great for fall and winter, but I didn’t feel like going out and trying it.
Well, today I didn’t feel like doing anything, therefore I just let the time pass. Tomorrow it will be better. Or so I hope.
Have you been running these days? Are you looking for a next goal?
Have A Safe Journey!
