1 run, 2 goals crossed off
Last week I had one of those moments after a run in which I finally felt like I was making progress.
I was thrilled to knock off two goals on my list of 26: running 3 miles at an overall pace under 10 minutes a mile AND a progressive run.
I did this in a somewhat controlled environment on the treadmill, but it was executed well.
It was, however, also a reminder of how far I have to go before I'm satisfied with running again.
I'd really like to have all the miles under 10 minutes a mile, not just the pace, and I'd like to be able to close off a progressive run about 30-45 seconds faster than where I am right now.
But I'll take it and keep marching forward ...
