I envy those fast runners

I got in 4.6 miles tonite running past the pee wee football players. I see them and I daydream about my football playing days. I tend to run better when I let my mind wander, daydream and make up heroic stories with me as the hero.

I'm still doing a run/walk program as you see in the graph. But, tonight I was having fun getting the run portion down into the 8's and 9's. I even saw a 7:21 on my garmin. If only I could run that fast for more than a 1/10 of a mile.

I'm really happy with the improvement I've seen since the beginning of the month. I ran about 64 miles total in May, June and July because of my ankle. I'm at 57 miles in August and hope to get 100 miles for the month.

Pat, good luck with that 100 mile month!

it took me a really long time to crack the 100 mile barrier in a month - nice work!

Your training is coming along really nicely. You'll have MN licked before you know it.

If you're pushing 100 miles for the month, you should be in pretty good shape for MSP.
