This morning I went out for an easy 8 with some strides in the last 2 miles. It was kind of warm so I was sure I'd be slower than lately, and I decided just to run and not look at my pace at all. I clomped around the neighborhood for a while until I figured it was about time to get down to those strides, checked the GPS to be sure and saw I'd been running in the low 7s, holy hell, that's the marathon pace I didn't run. This will never last. It's getting hotter, and I'm increasing my mileage, and next week I start working again so I'll be tired, and I still have this damn PF and now a little hamstring soreness too. It's only a matter of time before I start slogging around like the middleaged midpacker that I am. But for the moment, it's wonderful.
