Speed almost kills

Uffda! Speed work.

Okay last night I started this speed work thing. Today my legs are letting me know that work was involved. I think that is a good thing. I believe they call it no pain no gain.

The six miles I did last night was my quickest 6 for quite sometime. I completed the six miles in 55 minutes. Although some people finish a half marathon just about that fast, I am quite proud of getting it done at that pace. I even ran an 8:15 mile. Some people may have lapped me and finished 2 miles. However I would have most likely tripped them so itís a good thing for them not too have been in my neighborhood. The best thing about it was I really enjoyed it.

On tap for tonight is dinner with the kids and grandkids. That will be followed by a nice easy 5 miler.
