It is a picture perfect day for a run. Sunny, light breeze, and 70's temp-wise. Finally, I feel like we can put away the jackets, jeans, sweaters, and bulk.
I finished up a great 8 mile run just now at about 8:23/mile pace. It took me about 1:07 to finish the run. I ran the whole run at comfort pace and didn't look at my Nike Sportswatch until I had passed the hour mark. Then I checked, realized I was close to 8 miles and decided to finish up with that length. As I get more fit, I feel certain paces begin to get easier and my 8 miles at 8:23/mile is a good sign that I am getting there.
Once again, Scott Jones took me through my run with a podcast interview with New Jersey Ultra runner, Nick Bautista. He tells some good tales and I learned some things.
Tonight, I research the foam roller.
