Feels GOOD to go FAST

Yesterday I was irritable and low on patience...not sure why, just an off day I guess.  I was looking forward to running a 10K that night with Muscle Man.  The temp was perfect just under 70' and overcast.  I felt AWESOME from the start, we didn't have a real time goal but I knew we could have a great run if we pushed it..
This is my not-so-distant future when our son will be taller than us :) check out those missing teeth
This is how the miles went:

1- 8:51- Not really thinking speed and LS#1 ran a quarter mile with us, LS#2 fell asleep almost instantly and was out the whole run..


3-8:33- Stopped half way to get a quick drink for us and LS#1

4-8:14- I pushed the boys for a bit in this stretch and was zooming..

5-8:29- Up the gradual hill

6-8:12- Flat, long stretch of paved trail, I pulled ahead a little

.2- 7:57- Kicking it to the Finish!!
It felt amazing to have a full run in the 8:00's my legs were tingling after the run. Our finish time was 52:36, which is a 10K PR for Muscle Man, and he pushed the stroller 80% of the time... I am off to find him a 10K race so he can kill it..

I forgot how good it feels to go FAST... Sweaty and done!!!

Isn't it funny how you can feel out of sync and still run fast? Sounds like teh speed baton is being passed on in your house......

Ha, I had a fast-for-me run today and was wearing the same shirt as Muscle Man in that picture :) Maybe it's a good luck charm or something?

I was amazed at my pace after last night's run (second workout for the day after the morning's leg strength training). It's nothing short of wonderful when everything felt so right even and fall into place.

I can't believe you guys were that fast WITH a stroller. That is amazing!! Good job!!!

Love that tingly feeling at the end of a fast run! Muscle Man is going to ROCK a 10k especially since he probably won't be pushing a stroller!! Talk about resistance training!
