I had a great run today. I ran 4.53 miles in 40 minutes. That averages out to an average of 8:58 per mile. It felt great to go fast.
And herein lies the problem...the word fast is a very relative word. This was definitely a fast run for me, but it's not really fast. This could be a very discouraging thing, but I've decided to make it motivation instead.
I'm issuing myself a running challenge. I will be faster by the end of this year. How will I determine if I am actually faster, you ask? I will know. I will push and I will run, and...
I will be faster.
