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!
