Dogs woke me up a little bit earlier than the alarm clock was supposed to go off. So, instead of trying to ignore them for another 15 minutes and stay in bed, I decided it was easier just to get up. Let them outside, fed them, then headed to the Y.
Warmed up on the bike inside for 10 minutes, then some light stretching. Headed outside, pretty nice morning for a run. First mile was slow - 9:52, next mile was one minute faster, then I started feeling loosened up. Tried not to look at the garmin much, just looked whenever the next mile beeped to see what I had just done. Two miles in a row were the exact same pace - 8:02.
I just noticed that this is the first Monday I have run this month.
Average pace: 8:12
Yesterday, I signed up for the Jacksonville Marathon on Dec. 16, so now it is real and the clock is ticking again.
Asics (I need to go back and add this up)
