The New Normal

No, I’m not talking about the economy, I’m talking about running. It was just a few days ago that I decided to push harder and run at a faster pace, and it already feels normal to run more quickly. For today’s run I set out to run a nice, easy 5 miles. I even kept telling myself to relax and go easy. And it felt like I did, yet when I got done, my Garmin told me I ran at a 9 min/mile pace, which is faster than any run I had done prior to Monday.

  1. Great job! Make sure you get in some runs with some slower paced miles to give the legs a chance to recover. Can’t wait to see you continue to improve. Five miles at a 9 min pace…very nice!
