Today I had my mind set on running to four mile pond and back. I am in a building phase this week and the next two. The 50 mile barrier is in sight this week.
I was tired again today but encouraged. I appreciated the comments on yesterdays post and they helped me regroup and inspired me. I really value you all and blogging. It really is an integral part of my training. I expect to meet some of you all some day as I travel to exotic locales running marathons!! Plus, our home is always open to you! Remember Bass Pro November 1st!
Anyway enough of the mushy stuff. We have cool temps, overcast skies, a runners delight today! I began with a very slow (as usual) warm-up mile, but then something kicked in? I just ran! I actually had an 8:52 mile on the hills today!! Yippee!!
I held back because I'm looking to some possible speed work tomorrow. Wow! Marathon season is upon us! Today I envisioned myself in the marathon. Running strong! Holding the pace! Thinking I could run 9:00 min miles forever!
Totals-8.4 miles/ 1:22:28/ 9:48's. Hope it's going well for you! Peace!
