11/01/2017 5 miler, progressive Halloween burner

Coming off the binge of Reese's Peanut Butter cups yesterday feels good.  They tasted great, but it's time to train.  All during my run today, my thoughts were on racing.  I miss it.  I will WATCH the NYC marathon this weekend, for the first time since 2014.  Looking ahead, my thoughts of racing include the NYC Half in March, a spring marathon, and my part of the Franklin Lakes Triathlon.  I need to run fast again and compete.  Once I am game ready, I will try to squeeze in a race, I'll let you know.

Today's run was a progressive 5 miler.  I am still sore from the workout I did on Monday, but the running definitely loosened that up.  After about the first mile or so, I was feeling smooth.  Here are the splits from my run.

Mile 1-  8:31
Mile 2-  8:19
Mile 3-  8:10
Mile 4-  7:35
Mile 5-  7:00

I'm happy to run and get it done early in the day.  It's also time to start stretching these runs out and build 6, 7, 8, etc. miles.  Once I lose a couple pounds from the healthy eating and the cross training, I think I will start to see some serious fitness gains.
