I am feeling really encouraged about my running. Since Saturday a week ago, I have run in 4 different states (Indiana, Illinois (2x), Pennsylvania and New York.) Although most of my runs are now bi-state runs as I run from home in PA to Portville, NY. Two weeks in a row now I have had 23 miles for a monthly total of 46 miles and we are only halfway. If all goes well, I should be able to get in 100 miles this month. Interesting to note that my runs in PA/NY were flatter than the runs in Illinois – that surprised me. It has been warm and humid. My runs are not fast, but slowly, I seem to be gaining in speed. Several runs of late have been under a 10 minute mile pace. I would like to get back under a 9:30/mile pace and then onto 9:00/miles. Each day I go out, I feel stronger. Looking forward to going out tomorrow morning. I had two sets of back-to-back runs because of travel. This week I should only have one, with a long run (8+ miles or longer.) on Saturday. That’s about it for now. Pressing On!
