Did something I have a really hard time doing. Joined a new run group tonight . Always hard for me to join a new group. Worry if I am fast enough to keep up and just worry about everything in general. Anyways, it worked out really well and ended up running with the woman who organized the run , Beth B. Never met her before but we ran at the same pace. Not sure if she pushed me or I pushed her. But we ran 5 miles in avg. pace of 8:40. the last half mile or so she sprinted like the mad woman I suspected her to be! Could I keep up? Hell yeah! We sprinted all the way in... Then had a great core workout and got back to finish up a bunch of work crap.
So, 2 good recent runs. Sat. did inmotionfit 8 mile run. First 4 miles ran with 3 other s out to the half way mark at a 9:28 pace and then 3 miles from the end took off and nobody came with me so I HAD to keep the pace fast. Thought I would burn out early but pushed it to under 8 min pace the last 2+miles. Feels good to be running pain free and also fast (for me) again. Heading into my coughing season and 2 of us know how last years Buffalo Alley went!!!!!!!!
But am feeling MUCH better than last year and there will be NO repeat of the purging that happened some place in Carlsbad!
Here's to hoping EVERYTHING works out, KAMPAI !!! ttyl
