Finally broke 6 miles (Read 948 times)

    Finally broke 6 miles today. Did it in 44:20. I actually ran my last two miles faster than the other four after I got a second wind and just rode that home. I am so high on endorphins right now.
      Wow, that's really fast - averaging a 7:24 mile! Shocked Congrats!

        So I guess it means that if you kept your pace you could have gone a couple more miles, right? Big grin Congratulations! Ewa

          Probably. Smile But my calves were already straining pretty badly at the end. I'm going to the gym tomorrow, so I didn't want to completely kill them.

              I ran 6 miles for the first time this past Saturday, so I know how you feel. It took me 1 hr 12 min (you are really fast!), but I was feeling incredible afterwards. That evening, at dinner, I jokingly told my two teenage kids - "Kids, I got high today." (They had never heard of enorphins or a runners high.). Anyway, I hope this was not a one time thing, for I want that feeling again, and will try to get high again this Saturday. Big grin


              Finished!

                Yay! And at such a speed too Smile you sure are speedy!
