LRM TR #52, Born-Again Runner

LRM Miles Trained To Date: 358

Days Until First Marathon: 25

She's baaaaack! Man oh man - I had a great tempo run this morning. When I found out that it was 49 degrees outside, I nearly jumped for joy. Only one layer required! And I didn't even wear gloves. I did my super-favorite 5-mile loop while listening to my favorite DJ's.

Mile 1: 11:38 (on the low end of my training range)
Mile 2: 11:46 (mid-range)
Mile 3: 11:21 (low end)
Mile 4: 10:48 (faster than required - it just happened naturally)
Mile 5: 10:49 (how's that for consistency!?!)
Total: 56:24
Average: 11:17 per mile, 171 beats per minute

This just proves that some days we're "off" and some we're "on." Today I was ON!

Great time! I am so happy for you!

I wear gloves even running on the treadmill like I do. My fingers get really cold when I run. It has only been a problem since my weight loss and running started. The Doctor says not to worry, but it is an inconvenience...
