Thursday night speedwork

Tonight the group did 4 x 800. Not on a track, out on the road. I ran with a cool woman in the group who is training for her first half marathon ever. I felt strong and was definitely coaching her on pacing. On the last one I pulled ahead and was cheering for her to follow.

I’m very happy with the split times:

I’m looking forward to the next time when they are ALL under 10 minute pace. Told you I was slower than I used to be, but I’m finally feeling strong and like speedwork is worth my time to make me stronger.

For the love of running

We had an amazing, strong, beautiful 9 mile run this morning. My speed isn’t all the way back yet, but my strength is returning, and my spirit is intact. Happy day.
