Tonight, I had an 8 mile run at a pace of 8:00/mile. I hadn't stretched it out in a little bit and felt strong starting. Interestingly, I began to get a cramp about 2 miles in and carried it for just about the remaining 6 miles. I am lucky in that I generally do not get cramps, or side stitches, whatever you like to call them. About 1-2 times per year, that's about it.
Looking back at the run, I could probably stretch it out to 13-15 miles, so I feel good about where I am at. Two things on the agenda for the rest of the week, a strong Fartlek run, a homemade foam roller.
Later tonight or tomorrow, I will be going to Facebook to look for your thoughts on your favorite tunes to run/workout to. Please fill me in on what you like when the time comes and I look forward to compiling the info I get and posting a list of your top selections.
