Another 25 minutes in the bag! I was a little nervous of this one (as I have been prior to every one!) My wife and I now have a joke before I go on each run “I’m a bit scared, this is an important run tonight,” is now said each time I leave the house. In a way, I hope I always say it. Those nerves keep me focused.
But this run was actually ok. My legs felt great (don’t want to jinx myself) as I slowed down a tiny bit to a nice pace and even had fuel at the end for a 8 minute/mile last 60 seconds, without any lung burn! 7 weeks ago if someone had told me that, I’d have laughed!
And to top it all off, I received two “nod & smile” greetings from runners heading toward me! Haha. Looks like I’m becoming part of the club!
