7 easy miles

Lately it seems that I'll have 1 day out of the week where I just feel great and end up running well. This happened a couple of weeks before the Rockets 5k, when I first noticed that I was pretty fit while doing an easy run. It has been happening about once a week since. Today was one of those days. My mission was to do 7 easy and get the circulation going in my legs after doing 15 yesterday. Usually when you are trying to flush the gunk out of your legs you end up running pretty slow and easy. Well that didn't happen today. Right off the bat I did a 7:35 first mile. Usually when I run 7:30's or lower first mile that means my legs are pretty strong. That is what happened today. I usually don't rattle off my splits for easy runs but today was abnormally strong. Here they are:

  1. 7:35
  2. 6:58
  3. 6:54
  4. 6:41
  5. 6:41
  6. 6:45
  7. 6:36

6:53 pace/mile

Tomorrow I'll be doing the routine Monday hills. Later in the week I'll probably be doing the park to park 5 miler race. It will be a great opportunity to race some of the city's and state's best runners as I believe it is the Road Runner Club of America's Texas State Championship(RRCA) for 5 miles.
