On the sixth I ran my third (yes, I said third!) virtual race of the year and I tacked Tackle the Miles . I've been oddly quiet on the subject. Why? Because I don't know the metric system. Let me explain....
On February 6th, before work no doubt, I ran my tush off. I ran so hard that I had my best pace yet. And I just know that I'm going to hit a 10 minute mile by summer. No doubt in my mind. I was feeling really great about this awesome accomplishment when I read Angela's post over at Happy Fit Mama where she explains that she didn't run too far on her 5K this time. She only ran 3.1 miles. Whatcha talkin' about Willis?
You see the whole time I was running I thought that a 5K (and why I though this at the time is beyond me) was 3.33333... Which is really stupid because how would you even measure that out on the road? So what did I do on February 6th when I ran my 5K?
Yes. I ran 3.34 miles. Because I was rounding up. Because of the infinity thing and all. Slaps hand to forehead.
But that's okay. Despite my lack of mathematical skills and/or knowledge of the metric system I ran so hard I had a pace of 13:47 which was 23 seconds faster than my pace just a few days earlier for my 5th by the 5th Race. Every second counts.
So now that I've officially embarrassed myself. And every single one of my Canadian friends. Who I wouldn't blame if they said "Carli who?" let me tell you what else is going on in Fearless land.
I'm teaching Pilates.
Oh, and not just in my mind. After Zumba class. There was kickboxing. Oh, and then Yogalates. Okay, after all of that I was talking to the owner of the facility, Gina, and I reminded her that I'm a personal trainer and I'm studying to be a Pilates instructor. Gina remembered that we had talked once before about teaching. What she didn't know was that was before I decided to be all fearless and stuff. She said that she'd like to add another class on Tuesday nights after Zumba and also on Saturday mornings. I told her that I'd teach Pilates both days. She said yes. And now I'm going to teaching actual people! The cat is thrilled that he's off the hook.
There are a few things that I need to square away but I'm thinking I should have that all done and ready to go for her March calendar. I'll send you links and tweets once I get going in case you're in the area. :)
I'm kicking 2013s ass!
How are you doing with your 2013 goals? Are you better at the metric system than me? What was the last thing you did that was outside your comfort zone?
