I woke up this morning and the themometer read 53 degrees! I had to check the other one we have and sure enough it also said 53 degees! What a great morning for a great run!
Today I had a 16 mile fun run planned. On my 16 milers I like to run what I call my fun pace. It's the pace where I don't feel like I'm holding back like I do on longer runs and I don't feel like I'm pushing hard like I do on shorter runs. I do it on a seriously rolling hill course, so my mile splits fluctuate a lot. After the 15th mile I decided to let my legs go and run a comfortably hard pace. I did the last mile in 6:31 and still felt pretty good, but was glad to be done. And guess what. I had a great, fun time running this morning.
