I truly don't ever really jog at complete comfort pace I realize now. I often run faster than jog pace for one reason or another. I sometimes am limited for time, or I want to get a strong effort in, or sometimes, I just feel like running hard. Today, I set out to really just enjoy a jog. I only looked at my watch occasionally and just jogged for 8 miles. It took me about 1:15 and it felt great. I don't remember the last time I ran at a 9:25ish pace per mile. It felt great though.
The only reason I settled on 8 miles was because I was getting down to around the time I had to stop and always like to finish with a solid number. It's just my thing. Today wasn't about mileage, it was about effort and time. Plus, it is beautiful out and I enjoyed it more than if I was out busting my a$$.
