Running is Fun Again

Pushing the envelope has made running fun again. Over the last few weeks I have pushed the envelope and challenged myself to run faster and longer. Running is becoming fun again.

Missed the Steeple Chase , but I was ready. The race did serve its purpose and motivated me to get faster. I had a great week of training. My weight is right on track. I had a great tempo run (sub 7:00) and a great 16 miler (7:30 pace).

I hope to continue the intensity and work towards some 5 and 10K Prs. I also hope to to attain a sub 90 minute half marathon this fall.

I needed to read this. I'm trying to push myself as well (although my pushing looks like your lazy!). GREAT job on all fronts. :D
