Birthday miles done

by on Nov.15, 2012, under Training Runs

Finished up my birthday miles with a nice tempo run.  I needed 56 and ended up with almost 58 from last Friday through today.  Since that is double what I’ve run per week for the past 4 weeks I’m glad I didn’t get injured!  Had a great run today with Curt, Brad, Steve and Tim. Nice to see it is 10 seconds off of my Memphis half marathon goal pace (7:38) which will get me in under 1:40.  And this is after over 50 miles of running this week.  We finished the tempo strong but I didn’t hit the lap button at the top of the hill so lap 5 ended up showing 8:03 as we started up again.  It’s all good, details, details.  The 7:48 pace we ran today is almost exactly my half marathon PR – 1:42.

I’m heading to Florida for probably our biggest business conference of the year and then disconnecting from the Grid to enjoy a cruise with my family.  On the first day of the 57th year of my life I am amazed at the many blessings and opportunities I have.  So thankful to be able to run, to enjoy friends, to see the world, to build something with talented people at the Pond and to have a family that is wonderful beyond my wildest dreams.  Let the new year begin.
