Sweet Thursday Running
Saved myself for my moderate workout this afternoon. After a mellow mile to warm-up, I hit it. 7:00-7:30 pace up the hill against an ever so slight headwind. Felt great about that pace considering the grade. On the way back, I locked it in at 6:30-7:00 pace, hitting the last couple of miles closer to that quicker pace. It was exactly the kind of 13 miler I envisioned for today and was stoked to actually nail it after a couple of 20 mile days. Every once and awhile I surprise myself with how strong and solid I feel. It was the kind of strong pace I would be comfortable carrying on for 50 miles. Stopped at 13 miles as that was my limit for the day... rest. Today was one of those days. Thanks be to the Lord. Good stuff.
