What Garmin tells me

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.

Well done! Your comment was spot on with how I feel about Goblin Vally. It's just so far away! I'm going with a definate we'll see.

Looks like you and me both found our mojo!
