As you may notice from my week(ness) log, I've bee
I ran my fastest yesterday. I wanted to try to run a short distance as quick as possible - I think they call this speed work. So, sans shoes and The Pooper, I ran my 2.4 mile "Quickie" on the streets of Cuyahoga Falls. It was my fastest run ever at an 8.5 min/mi pace. I've never gone flat out like that before - yes, you are supposed to laugh at the "flat out" part- but I'm happy with the result. I had not broke 9 min/mi previously. The very first Run of My Life in August '09 on the same trek, was at 15.6 min/mi - I took 3 walking breaks. Yesterday, it was a gorgeous day of sun and 36 degrees. The pavement was warm and the spectating kids stared. I love it when normally outspoken kids can't find anything to say - but you know they want to. That look of befuddlement is priceless.
Today I took the Pooper on a 5.66 mile to Glen Trail, crossed Front Street to hit Gorge Trail then back. It was awesome, muddy, crunchy snow, sunny beautiful, slow, and most of all fun.
Here are some post run pics:
Barefoot Josh is so enamored with foot pics. This is a post run cooldown pic.
The blister is old and from a previous run.
Kind of out of focus - I don't seem to have the ankle flexibility as does BFJ.
