Happy July! I’m celebrating two minor improvements.
- I’m learning what my 5K pace feels like. On my interval workout on Monday, I hit my 5K pace a lot more than last week. I’ve learned that it’s slower than an all-out effort but faster than a slightly comfortable pace. I still need to work on it, but I’m getting there.
- My easy run pace is faster. I’ve been reviewing my running log, and my easy run days are averaging about 10 seconds/mile faster than they used to at the beginning of this year. I wear my Garmin but never check it mid-run on easy run days, so I think my average pace is a true measure that I might be getting a teensy bit faster. Hey, I’ll take it!
I’ll be away from this blog for the holiday weekend, so I wish everyone luck and much fun at races and other runs this weekend. I love reading race recaps, so already I can’t wait to hear how everyone’s races go.
I’ll leave you with some kitty pictures since my dog usually takes the spotlight.
