This is the last Saturday running update for August. I will have one more running update, because August is my running birthday, but more about that next week. August has been a good month, despite the slow start because of our family camp and vacations, but I recovered and should be able to punch out as many miles as I did last year in August. I’m shooting for 117. Over all for 2017 I have in 608 miles which is more than I had last year for the first 8 months. Beating September will be a challenge because I had 150 miles. Also today was my 100th run of the year. Again not bad due to the slow start.
Today was one of those days, I felt sore and really didn’t think I could do a long run, after all I did do 6 miles yesterday. At the 7 mile mark I was really regretting it, but just like last week, just beyond the 7 mile mark, it all came together. My last full mile was at a really good pace – under a 10 minute mile pace. The whole run was at a 10:15 pace and I was able to do 9.25 miles and now feel wonderful. That’s about all I have for now. Like I said my running birthday is coming up next week, so I have more then.
