The run this morning went well 5.41 miles @9.53 my first mile was a 9:20, all my first miles since the turn around have been about a 9:30 - 9:35. Just about a month ago I was happy with a 10.35 and a few months back I was lucky to break 11:00 my first mile in my training runs. I know I shouldn't really dwell on pace all the time but when you are finally doing what you wished you were doing all along and you see that there maybe a chance that you might be doing what you use to do 8:30 to 9:00 min training runs again, just make me crazy in a very good way. I hope what I just said made sense. I know someone out there understands.
I did not make it to the gym tonight. I was dress just did not get out the door. I think I lifted a little heavy this morning and I was working lower, so I decided to rest tonight.
Someone at the gym mention to me today that someone else said I got a butt. I think that they expect me to have no butt since I run so much. I know I've gained some weight but come on haven't they ever seen the NIKE butt commercial!!! I'll let this one pass. The best compliment I got once was during a 30k race the women running behind me saying OMG your butt don't jiggle!! that made my day.
