I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

easy 7 w/ hot sauce lap

I like pushing/testing myself. So, after a 30 minute 6K, sprinted as hard as I could for the last kilometer. The result; sub 4 minutes – 3:56 … wow! Made me think back to last year’s runs … I think the fastest I ever ran 1000m was 3:53, maybe 3:50 … and that was w/ fresh legs and lungs, making this time even more impressive! Wow, indeed!!

33′ 7K

… + w/ yesterday’s 27′ 6K = 13K in 1 hour. Funny, last year I┬átried a few times running this distance in this allotted time, but always was short – never did achieve it … I think 12.7K was my best. Today’s run was a steady paced effort … the first 6K was even splits (the second and third were identical to the 1/1000 second. spooky), and then I picked it up for the final kilometer … to a lesser degree than yesterday’s run, were I was really able to quicken my pace. That’s something were I feel I’m a better runner this year compared to last year. I feel I’m maturing, and able to do more, even though my training is absent. Last year, I had no finishing kick … my best times all were the result of starting fast and maintaining the pace as far as it would take me. Just a personal observation of changes within myself, and were running is taking me.
