90 minutes and 7 miles. That’s a 12.85 minute/mile pace and good enough. Once more I didn’t take my GPS unit or a watch, I was only interested in the 90 minute mark, as I’m looking for endurance this week and not speed.
I had the usual “bad thoughts” versus “good thoughts” arguments for the first 3 miles. “You’ve gone far enough. It’s really cold and you only need to get your heart rate up. You’ve done that…and you can do more tomorrow.” Now that’s a Bad Thought! And I was able to provide a better Good Thought argument and continued on.
Another Foot Note: Beauty is fleeting…and so are toenails. Real beauty lies within…within the middle of a ten minute mile!
