In the past 30 days, I've run 12 times for a total of 60 miles. Average pace around 12:00. 3 days a week. Definitely getting on track after the minimal running in the preceding months. I'm getting used to paying attention to my pace now, and -- wonder of wonders -- I am just beginning to watch my pace fall a bit. So I *just now* looked back at some random runs from last month, and the month before, and the year before and -- I am surprised, but Gary don't lie -- my pace is pretty much the same. A bit more consistent from run to run, but pretty much the same. I'm surprised because it feels different, I think maybe I'm getting . . . not faster but stronger? (dunno how I can say that directly after my last post, but whatever). The past two times I've been in Marin, I've done the un-doable . . . I've actually ran, instead of just hauling my running bag back and forth like I have done the past, oh, year.
I am getting there.
