Saturday's run was great! First off I rested on Friday and that left me with much fresher legs going into the run. Also a younger member of our Bourbon Chase team was there and our 8:33 for the first 6 miles was like a walk for him : ) I let him continue on at the halfway mark and touched based with 2 more Bourbon Chase runners that were running that morning as well. I decided to keep going fast and see how long I could hold it. I definitely slipped a little but caught myself and picked it up for an 8:37 finish. My usual running partner was there and had a great run as well!
Next week we bump it up to 14 miles : ) Going to try to keep my week miles up until school start since it will be harder once I am working again. I am also loving the Shred video and think the strength training is paying off. Guess all those famous runners and Runner's World people know what they are talking about after all.
