Today’s run: 6 miles
Holy crap. I think Joe’s over-sized jacket may be good luck; I threw it on again today because it was too cold to wear anything else. My feet felt like they had been submerged into two giant ice cubes for the first 2 miles…but beyond that I could feel them again. When I heard “9:19” for the first mile, I swore for a moment that my Nike+ application was broken. Then I hit the second, and the third, and the numbers remained low – actually, after that they kept going down.
I ended up finishing just under 50 minutes….my fastest time ever.
I didn’t go out today with a goal of breaking any new record, but I did, and it felt fantastic. I saved yesterday’s 3 miler for tomorrow, since the morning shift killed me again. I needed a rest. Maybe it helped, for today. I can only hope my times stay this good. Bringing today to an end feeling pretty damn proud.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
