Fast Two Days

The past two days I’ve run outside in sub 30 degree weather (sorry Viper, I couldn’t abide by your protest). Tuesday was 4 repeat miles with splits at 5:53, 6:15, 6:12, 6:17. Ummm…those were surprisingly fast, much faster than my 6:30 to 6:35 goal.

Then last night I raced the sunset for an 8M training pace run (7:10 to 7:30 pace). And I had one of those ridiculous runs. One of those, great run wrong time kind of runs. My splits went: 6:26, 6:42, 6:48, 6:46, 7:04, 7:06, 7:05, 6:49 for a total of 54:45. A palindrome run. I like that.

Today I will run at pace even if I have to carry a sack of potatoes. I’m not complaining, I’m just surprised.

It must be something in the air, since my own run to beat the sunset yesterday was my fastest 8-miler ever.

I will protest like I drink ... alone.

I thought I smelled some rubber burning last evening. Nice work.
