I hadn't planned on a second post to my blog today but I am just very jazzed about my run today. I had a marathon pace run which I had been starting to feel stressed about my new goal MP for Houston. I mean sub-8 minutes never was on the table till to a couple of weeks ago and now I had to start believing that I swing these paces for 26.2. Even early in the week fresh off my PR from Kiawah there was some doubt sitting there in the back of my head. As much as Jeff reassured I would be ready for Houston, I still was have believing him until today!!
Today I had 10 miles with 8 @ MP which may not seem like a lot but with legs that have been have putting lots of miles day in & out since Kiawah. Racking up miles like never before. It is a big deal to feel so fresh and at ease.
I quickly found MP and settled in. Ran comfortably and happy the entire way!
8:05, 8:01, 7:51, 7:58, 7:51, 7:53, 7:52, 7:45 - @ 7:55 average pace
So is 7:55 my MP - We shall see in 4 weeks!
