I’m a slow runner. See # 7 in my last post below. My “run” for a lot of people is a “jog”.
So last night, I go out for a 5-mile run. I felt strong on the whole run. Perhaps it was because it is fairly cool here temperature wise (I think it was about 55 degrees when I left the house). Perhaps I just felt extra motivated – too many Christmas cookies. I don’t know. Nevertheless, I felt strong. Wasn’t pushing too hard; just cruising.
Two-mile turn. 17:50. Feeling good. Not winded. Rockin’ the iPod to some Green Day.
Mile four turn: 36.xx. Wow! It’s turning into one hell of a fast run.
Finish. 5.01 miles. 44:20. 8:51/mile pace for the entire run. Mr. Garmin said my last mile was 8:13.
Could it be a breakthrough to faster running? Not sure. Was it a milestone for me? Absolutely!
