Last week's total: 8.5 miles
Today's workout: 8 miles/ 1:26:12, average pace: 10:46/mi
Today was a great run with some hills here and there. I am not sure why it takes 3 miles for my body to be convinced that we are actually doing the running thing, but as soon as I hit 3 miles, my body just turned into a running machine and everything felt great. My body needs to run. I am very surprised at how quickly I am getting my fitness back. I was only going to run 7 but my legs just wanted to run that extra mile. Let's hope I don't regret that tomorrow! Looks like I need to start looking for a half to set a new PR!
The best thing about running: that deep burn in the butt/back of the legs when you are running up to the crest of a hill. Love it! Already looking forward to a little speed training this week and setting new mileage record for the new year.
