1 mile cooldown
I got a good day's rest yesterday after my eight miles followed by a 12-hour work day on Sunday and my legs felt ready to run fast. The stars were bright at a half moon lit my way.
I'm happy to report that I beat all my target paces by 7 to 13 seconds with the exception of my last 600 (that was by 3 seconds...I know awful :-P), but during that one I was paying more attention to the huge flock of seagulls that flew into the infield and I was trying not to get pooped on.
200 - :45 (no set pace for a 200)
400 - 1:37
600 - 2:28
800 - 3:27
800 - 3:29
600 - 2:38 (look out for the birds!)
400 - 1:36
200 - :44
And now I am officially halfway to age 70. Ewww... More positively, I am officially in the year of my life in which I will be running my first half and full marathons! 34 was a great year, I got running back into my life, fit into my pre-pregnancy, even pre-marriage clothes (I think I gained 10 pounds on our honeymoon!), started this blog that has helped me to find the incentive and commitment to make running a permanent fixture in my life and through I have the support of my friends and family, virtual or in-person (some of the former have become the latter).
When I got back this is what Zeke had waiting for me:
|Blue frosting, because blue is my favorite color.|
|Zeke dictated the inside of the card to Ian. But he signed his name!|
