On our half-marathon training plan, we were supposed to run 8 miles today.  Well, Nick was gone, so Jenn and I decided to do next week's 10k today.  The weather was supposed to be rainy/sleety/nasty, so we got up a little earlier to avoid it.  We started our run when it was dry, but pretty soon it was starting to drizzle.  We both cut our runs a little bit short (I did 6 miles instead of 6.2).  But today was different than any other runs.  It was FAST...for me!  I think the speed workouts are helping.  The tempo runs and the track workouts seem to make everything faster.  Friday was 7x400 at the track, and I cooked my legs pretty good.  But it was all worth it, because today was probably my fastest long run ever. I ran 6 miles at 8:39/mile.  That made me feel pretty great!  I didn't even feel over-spent after I was done.  We've got 7 more weeks to the half-marathon, so I'm thinking that my sub 2-hour goal is going to be doable.  Thanks for the encouragement!
