Just got done with the PRT and did fine. I always get nervous before I go. You'd think after doing about 20 of them you'd get used to it, but I haven't. I ended up with an Excellent Low, not bad for a 33 year-old that doesn't have time to work out regularly. I felt pretty good about that one, not as good as my last one. Anyway, I was in a sharing mood.
Not bad at all for not working out, (regardless of your age!)
I noticed that in the last two years that I've been in my current RN program that my training has diminished much, as have my mile times too.
It is the cumulative training, I think, that is what helps maintain and even build for those over 30. Hey!! If anything, now you have a new goal to shoot for a 34 year old Personal Record!
Twenty of them, phew, no doubt having done them in your twenties and then now might feel like you are taking a hit. I know that I am SO envious of those races that I ran when I was so much younger, to think that my training was half-footed then! Oh, what I'd give to be able to do those times now!
Congrats on passing and good luck on your new personal bests from here on out.
