There really needs to be an intermediate time there. I know 9:30s are not "fast", but I did 19 of them and then a 7:53 for the last mile. Very excited about today's run, especially after Thursdays. I was ready to throw in the towel on Boston. It's not worth going if I am going to just bomb it again. Some days are better than others! So dramatically in my case.
Love pounding that AZ dirt! My whole pelvic girdle is sore; maybe old Moms aren't supposed to be running over 12 miles. That's when it starts to hurt. Then again, it used to start to hurt at 8, so there is good news.
I didn't stop once today until I was finished. A first for me. I also ran all 5 if the last five miles under 9:30 pace, so I am happy. Overall time was 3:09 minutes. Then I walked a mile back. A great day for running, 55-65 degrees.
