I got myself to the gym tonight for a run, 6 miles speedwork.
mile 1: 5.3 mph
mile 2: 5.3 mph
mile 3: 5.6 mph
mile 4: 5.8 mph
mile 5: 6.0 mph
mile 6: 5.7 mph
It felt GREAT! Then cooldown, stretch, 100 crunches, 2x10 pushups.
I'm going skiing tomorrow, which means my legs will be begging for mercy by the end of the day, and screaming at me on Sunday when I try to run long. Yes, I can run 'til the cows come home, but skiing is a totally different beast. :-)
