Felt fast today

I don’t know how I’m doing it, but I got faster yet again. I felt really strong, and the run felt easy. Heck, at the end, I only stopped because I wanted to get inside to shower and eat dinner. I could have easily gone another mile or so. I started out strong and I was able to keep the pace pretty quick throughout the entire run. At the end, I even pushed it out a bit, and ran the last half mile or so at a sub-8 minute pace!

Overall, I ended the run with an 8:22/mile pace over 3.1 miles. That’s the 5k distance, and I think from this point forward, it’s my new minimum run distance.

I don’t feel sore or worn out. A little tired; sure, but that’s to be expected. I’m hoping to continue making progress, but I think my next run will be an easy one to let my muscles heal up a bit more. We’ll see.
