10/12/16 Faster run, gotta be the shoes, @asicsamerica

Tonight was my third run in 3 days.  After 8 miles one Monday and 15 miles yesterday, I was planning on taking today off.  However, I had a good opportunity to get a run in and some more miles, so I took it.

I ran for 5 miles today and I decided to wear my Gel DS Racers to change it up a bit.  I haven't worn them in awhile and I do like running in a lighter shoe.  The Racer is my ideal shoe.  It's light, fast, a little bit of cushion, but barely, and they feel fast.  It was obvious right from the start that I was going to run faster than I had in weeks.  Here are the splits:


1
07:23
7'23"

2
14:15
6'52"

3
21:05
6'50"

4
27:50
6'45"

5
34:27
6'37"







Negative split each mile, finished 5 miles in 34:27.  That leaves my pace at a nice 6:53/mile.  The rest of the week, I am going to slow it down and recover, a couple easy 5 milers.  Twenty-Five days until the marathon, and it feels like it is coming on light a freight train.  A good freight train though :)
