6 miles yesterday. 4 miles today.
It's amazing what a couple days off in a row will do for your running. That and some motivation from watching Chris Solinsky set a new American record in the 10k.
When you start running 4:20 per mile, and you get 25 minutes in and think "Well, I better start winding down," so you finish with a 1:56 final 800 meters... that's when you know you have a knack for this running thang.
You may have wondered before "Am I cut out for this?" "Do I have what it takes?" "Should I just go back to school and get an Engineering degree and a steady 40hr/wk job?"
But once you race like that, you can be confident you chose the correct career.
Time to keep running. Warm weather = no excuses
