As a thanksgiving gift to myself I went for a run. Feeling good after retaining my 7km last week and inspired by obligatory inspirational story of triumph over adversity in my latest running mag I upped it. 8.25km. No stopping, not even lights. In 51:49 which puts me at 6:16/km. That is a pretty nice pace over that distance. My goal of 10km is not so far off (although I'll need a new goal then!).
Other thought: I may have to bring a friend more often or re-introduce music to my running. I'm close to an hour out there now and a new route makes it exciting but I bet it will start to get old fast. Perhaps putting more effort into my playlists will be the solution.
