3 miles 7:59 pace
Yay! I’m running again. I decided that my cough/cold had subsided to an ever present need to clear my throat so I would let myself try a few miles. It went great. It felt really good to crank out a few miles. My legs weren’t tired and the miles didn’t seem to be overly difficult. In fact, I tried some “strides” (which I just learned about a week or so ago) which are controlled accelerations for, in my case, 0.15 miles. I ran my “strides” at 6:00 pace and the rest of the miles alternating between 8:00 and 8:30 pace. Gosh, it feels good to be back. (That last sentence reminded me of the song in the movie “Office Space”… “Damn it feels good to be a gangsta…”)
I'm in a good place right now. TGIF
I the spirit of running again, here are a few pictures of me ‘in action’ at Fargo. I accidentally pulled these from the marathon picture website, but honestly may buy two of them.
