I'm Melting!!

  So my goal today was to run 105 minutes, and to run the last 2 miles faster....didn't work! I got out late and the heat, sun, and humidity took a toll and I melted away...however I did run the whole way and feel fine, I just wasn't able to push the pace into marathon pace zone. So it was a good fat burner and I've kicked off the week with a solid training run. I really, really need to get this run into a higher mileage zone. I am continuing the building....tomorrow 70 minutes, Wednesday 70 minutes of hills, Thursday off Friday 70 minutes conversational, Saturday 7X2 min @ HM pace or faster...sounds good, huh? I should get into the 30+ mile range for the week, too. I am really excited about how my body is responding, too. I pulled out a pair of jeans the other night and put them on, the seemed a tad tight? Not bad but snug....hmmmm...turned out they were some old 33 inchers! Oh yeah!! The waist line is shrinking!! Peace!

Congratulations Mark - you are doing great building the mileage and shrinking the waist! Keep sweating & smiling!

Race week

   So I do hope to run a 4 mile race this Saturday. I'm pretty sure I can easily break 40 minutes but 36 minutes might be a better targ...
