Recapping This Week's Runs

I got my first 10 miles under my belt since running the Tar Heel 10 Miler in April. I've been inching towards the mileage, putting in 9 miles last week, so I _should_ be able to get 10 miles in, but 'ya never know'.

$Bill met me for the run. He had 11 to conquer. We are both gearing up for our 10 mile race in three weeks. And although I was a bit worried about doing 10 miles in three weeks, I can honestly look back at today's run and think "wow, this wasn't too bad".

I am still reeling from Tuesday's amazing feat: conquering an amazingly hard and aggressive track workout. Bill and I had the same workout; his a few seconds faster than mine. But it worked the hell out of my legs and I have been sore for days since doing it. But most importantly, I am beaming with pride at accomplishing that workout. It was hard. It was beyond challenging. It was long. And I conquered it.

Thursday's run started out pretty hard but somewhere more than half way through it, after running UP an incredible hill (half mile hill), I found my second wind and managed to end up with a great feeling run.

Let me tell you. It's been a long time since I have had good run days. And this past week has been pretty great. Including the weather.

It's going to be a busy race season for me. My first race is next Sunday. One mile race but as short as it is, it's tough because it's an all out 'how fast can I run one mile'. And then there's race after race after that one... I haven't raced since May so it'll be interesting to see how I do.
