Last night’s run was actually pretty decent. I set out with a good pace and was able to keep it up pretty much the entire run. It wasn’t my fastest time, but I only missed that by a few seconds each mile. The more important part to me is that I felt good through the run, and near the end, my legs felt completely invisible. What I mean by that is that I didn’t feel them: no pain, no burning, or anything at all. It was like I was gliding along the sidewalk.
The distance was 3.55 miles and my pace was <10 minutes which is my current goal. As long as I can get an average below 10 minutes/mile, I’m happy. The next goal is to keep each half mile split under 10 minutes. I had two half mile splits that went over 10 minutes by 11 seconds; I will work that down.
