I was VERY happy with my run this morning! Colby was nice enough to run with me again and I really pushed myself at the end. The treadmill is definitely helping me hold a faster pace outside and I am going to keep using it to help my speed. It wasn’t as sunny this morning, but it was still crazy humid. I am hoping to keep this up and hopefully hold this pace for a 5 miler. I know this might not seem that great to many of you, but for me it is really great! I was stuck in such a “pace rut” during the marathon training and after that I need to shock my system. It hasn’t been my goal for a long time to change my pace because I stuck with 9:40-9:50 for the marathon and trained at that pace for nearly all of my runs.
Really sweaty and proud of my run this morning Wearing my super soft 26.2 t shirt from the Pittsburgh Marathon Expo!
Today was our last day at the beach! I am not looking forward to cleaning and packing tonight. The weather was perfect today!! We got out there a little earlier today so it wasn’t so hot and we could have stayed out all day. I felt the sun getting to my skin and knew it was time to go inside!
