Post-Run Report: January 16, 2017

Today’s run was actually pretty decent. I set out to run faster than I have in the past few runs, and I accomplished my goal with some pretty decent numbers. My average pace for the 3.52 miles was 9:46 with the first half mile being the best at 9:16. More impressive to me was that I was sub-10 minutes on all three miles overall including the last half.

This is important to me. My running goal is to run sub-9’s as my “comfortable run” pace, and I’m getting there. It’s taking me some time, but I’m getting there. Today’s run was comfortable, and notable to me because as I pushed my legs to run faster, they weren’t really aching or burning. The only real limiting factor today was my willpower and desire to run faster.

Tomorrow is a rest day for my legs, so I may do some situps or something. I haven’t decided yet. But tonight, I will sleep well having had a really nice run with great results!
