    Did my first 3-mile tempo run at under an 8:00/mile pace! Except the RA pace calculator doesn't calculate to the millionths of a second or whatever, so I only get credit for an 8:00/mile. Roll eyes Oh well. I know I did it. Not bad...from a pack a day habit to an 8:00/mile tempo run in 4.5 months. Kick @$$!! Big grin

    I've got a fever...

      Nice job. Looks like you crushed your listed 5k PR pace in your temp run, too. Big grin

      On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

        Yeah...that "PR" was really a 5k that I didn't train for--in fact I hadn't run in about 8 months when i ran it. That was a race that was short enough that I could run it on pure adrenaline. But I hurt like hell for about two weeks afterwards and in reality am lucky I didn't injure myself in the process...

          *bows* That is REALLY an amazing accomplishment! My dad is currently trying to quit. Took almost having a stroke and having to have carotid artery surgery to give him the incentive. I'm glad you are nipping things in the bud now. Smile k

          I shoot pretty things! ~

          '14 Goals:

          • 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1

            Way to go PWL!! You're my running hero (of course, I am a little partial).
              Awesome! I just Love to hear about people ending that nasty habit of smoking, better yet is that you have a habit of running now. Big grin Nice tempo pace, congratulations.
