Fantastic, Funtastic, Runtastic

I had a great run tonight.  8 miles!  I felt so strong and I had a lot of time to reflect on my last year and how far I have come in running, fitness, health and quality of life.  Everything is stronger now (Well, except my job.  That's my low point). 

I hope to run the next two days before my rest day and then continue this summer until my 10K in September.  My goal is 1 hour, and by the looks of this run, I completely think that is doable.  Here are my splits.  I can't believe how fast I was at the end!

  • Mile 1- 11:34 Warm Up
  • Mile 2- 10:54
  • Mile 3- 10:27
  • Mile 4- 12:10 (includes 2 minute re-fuel break)
  • Mile 5- 10:10
  • Mile 6- 10:03
  • Mile 7- 9:58
  • Mile 8- 10:03

We get back from South Carolina Friday evening.  My next appointment in Baltimore is next Wednesday (the 8th).  I'll definitely update for that follow up.

  1. That's great! I'm running my first 5k in October, the Under Armor Baltimore Marathon. I'm not anywhere near as fast as you yet though!
