I got out for a five miler today and it's nice to be on a bit of a roll. I am a long way from running fast, but I tried to be faster than the last few runs. I managed to run it in about 38:48, which breaks down to about 7:45/mile. Considering my first my was 8:34, I am happy with today's run.
I am now attempting to add my nutrition to the mix as I need to drop some weight. I just feel sluggish when I run, even today, when I went faster. As I continue, my motivation snowballs and I feel like I am headed in the right direction. I know, with a little effort, by the middle of November, my weight can be where I want it to be. For now, I need to plug along and back off the food.
