The result was 5 miles at an average pace of 8:55, which is the fastest I've run since last summer, by a lot. I was so happy when I saw my final pace that I almost cried.
|You get an 8, and you get an 8, and you get an 8.|
I have been keeping an eye on my recent "fast" miles and I've had a few at 9:0something over the last few months. My run last Monday included a 9:02 and a 9:05, which also made me want to celebrate.
I still have a long way to go, but for the first time in a long time, I feel like I'm on my way. And moving a bit more quickly.
