11 days and counting

Well 13 days until the PF Changs Half Marathon. But, 11 days running. Today was my 'speed' workout. I decided that I would get under a 10 mpm pace and see how long I could hold it. Ten minutes plus early in the run and for 3 or 4 minutes at the end.

I had a piece of hard candy at the end of the run. Dr. Pepper flavored and it seemed to help me, just as much as a Gu or Gel would. I give it credit for my last half mile spurt.

Stats to be Proud of
Check out the pace on the far right and the improvement from August when I was just getting back from my summer slumber to this month.

Pat, you're killing me with this streak! When I read that you're running, I have to go out and keep my streak alive. That's great progress on the speed.

You certainly have picked up quite a bit of speed in the last several months. Great job! You are certainly ready for PF Chang's.

Great stats, Pat. At the rate you're improving, maybe a BQ in 2010?

You are getting faster as the days go on. We will be seeing you at the Oly Tryouts in a couple of years.
