I did my first 8 minute mile. Wow! This is also the fastest I’ve ever completed 10 miles too. Today was my long run. Marathon Training – back on track. Today’s mantras…never give up and acheive the impossible. I felt really good and could pick up pace with ease and not feel strain or exhaustion from such. I actually feel I could go out and run some more. The air was perfect and the temp – 60 degrees. My knees were sore into mile 8 and 9 but mile 10 I really poured it on for first half of the mile and then race walked the last.
I took along a package of Gu (yuck). I think it helped me though. I read that the body absorbs that better than the energy beans while running. So will continue even though it isn’t very appealing. They should call it something else too. I’m going to rename it – “Power Pack“. I like that much better. So when I say “Power Pack, you know that is actually – Gu.
Have an awesome day and here’s to everyone who is striving to achieve, what they maybe thought at one time to be …impossible.
