After Monday night's harrowing run I was itching to get out there and get in some faster miles. I figured the lunch time running crew would be good for a fast, short run.
Although, when 11:30 came and went and the round-em-up email hadn't gone out I began to wonder. Was it still too icy on the path? Was everyone stuck in meetings? Were they all going to wuss out?
I'll be honest, the thought of going out there and getting sweaty and pushing myself all alone was not appealing. So I sent out the email and thankfully got some responses.
And, thankfully, the path was not icy at all. Sure, there were some big, cold puddles but no ice. Which meant I was able to push the pace. I didn't always pause my Garmin for stops so here's what I got:
Mile 1 - 9:28
Mile 2 - 9:00
Mile 3 - 8:21
Mile .19 - 9:17 pace
Nice, huh? It was tough but enjoyable. Yes, there are things that can be both.
Although I may be paying the price now. My left shin feels achy. Good thing I've got a day off before my next speed session!
