I did it at a record pace today too. I've been trying to push myself to go faster for longer periods of time, because it gets me done quicker, and it seems to help keep the shin splints at bay. Today, I did my five miles at a PR pace of 11:38 per mile. That's a full two seconds below last week's 11:40 PR. That's cool right? If I don't make it to 500, at least I did something good, right?
But I'm going to make it. So there!
