8 Miles of way too fast

Tuesdays are my easy days, but sometimes this runner just can not seem to get an easy pace down. People have different opinions on this subject. As for me, I think easy is whatever your body pumps out. Today my body pumped out a 7:45 average for 8.5 miles.  It felt great. I didn't start until 6:30 so the sun was out for the run. Usually on work mornings it is dark, so when I was running I kept thinking it was the weekend... but then I had to continue to bring myself back to reality.

I finally registered for the half marathon this weekend. I think I am going to push myself to find a 7:00 pace for this race. Whether or not I am ready for that... I don't know, but I am ready to find out!!

Tomorrow is dreadful track day.... oh how I wish I naturally had fast twitch fibers in my body, then I wouldn't have to force myself to be a gerbil and run around circles every Wednesday morning!


  1. You're funny! :) I'm glad you're not a gerbil!! Great job on the easy run! I'm excited about Sunday and so happy that you registered!! No stressing ... just run! I think you may surprise yourself!

  2. I agree, easy is whatever comes naturally, sometimes faster than others. I think you can nail that 7:00 pace this weekend! See you in 2 1/2 days!!!!
