Last night I had a great run that included 60 second pickups every three minutes.
I finished each mile about 10-12 seconds faster than I did when I did pickups two weeks ago, so I’m pretty happy with that. I’m not feeling very tired after each mile though, so I should probably increase my pace a bit more. I think I’ll do that next week and see how it goes.
It feels good to be increasing my pace after spending so long just maintaining.
I find it so easy to get into a comfortable place with running and stay there. I think it’s because I spent so many years viewing running as this horrible, agonizing thing…. Now when I run and find it easy it makes me feel really cool. I’m sure progress will make me feel even better though! : )
Two random things….
1. The picture is blurry, but yes that does read 88 degrees. It’s already SO HOTTTTT!
I like the warmth but seeing that number reminded me that after May there are literally no races here in south Florida because of the weather. I need to sign up for some 5Ks asap so I can try to meet my time goal!
2. Cats don’t like to take selfies, it’s risky business asking your cat to take one.
Cecil demanded several treats after being subjected to this torture.
Does your city host races all year long? (If yes, let me know if you have any good 1/2 marathons during the summer, I’ll be looking to register for one!)
