The joys of running
I did not feel like getting up at 5:30 this morning to go for a 3 mile run. Running made it up to me. After two days of rest my legs felt great and I decided to do a fast run rather than my usual tempo run. I did the first mile in 8:24! I couldn't believe it, that is the fastest mile I have ever run. I slowed down to a 10:30-11 pace for the next 2 miles and finished in 30:15. I know I told myself no more races till the half, but I found a 5K on my birthday (7/17) that I may do. I'm pretty sure I can get a PR and I thought it'd be a nice birthday present to myself. Only bad thing is that it's at 7:30 in Virginia Beach, so I'd have to leave around 6am. So we'll see!
