Running into the Night
Feb 17, 2009
Tonight I joined my running club for a 6-miler under the star-lit skies. Since it was a mild 32-degrees, we had a good size group dodging traffic. We ran a nice comfortable 10:36 pace and then three of us finished up with strides to engage those fast-twitch muscles.
I'm sure anyone who saw us wondered what we were up to. . . three grown adults racing down the middle of the street at top speed. Those endorphins were flowing as we hit a pace of 3:51 to 4:32 at the peak of each stride. I so love to run!
Last week, I ran 6 days out of 7 for a total of 24.5 miles and worked in 2 spin classes. I'm excited to have clear focus in my training. Saturday I'll pass on my passion for running to new runners who will be training for a 15K in July.
