IT is such a rush to completely destroy a PR. Not only do I feel so accomplished (the rush of adrenaline could fly me to the moon and back) I also feel like a super hero (for a day or two) in the eyes of my family. For example, when I ran my first 5k my finish time was 34:36, but when I ran The Pear Blossom Run last year my finish (chip time) time was 30:13...I KILLED it, by 4 minutes and 23 seconds. I was super excited and that feeling lasted several days. I still get excited when I think of it.
OF course, this Saturday when I run The Pear Blossom 5k I will probably not beat my last PR, read about my pelvic stress fracture debacle here. I am not back to normal yet so I will just have to be happy with what I get. We shall see. Wish me luck as I try to come close to my pre-injury PR.
- Have you ever "killed it"?
- Do you want to "kill it"?
- Do you think of hunting large game animals as "killing it"?
Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
