Today I ran…

The fastest mile splits I’ve ever done, well ever done and known about it that is. So I may have, probably have actually, run faster at some point however that is a long long time ago…

Not that I am by any means super fast, but I am quite happy with 10.17 minute miles(ish I don’t have a very accurate watch), that gives me something to work on. The  funny thing is, this was not really a short run. Well in the bigger scheme of things, today I ran 4 miles and just a few weeks ago that would have been a long run for me. Today’s run also started out pretty bad, however at around a mile I started feeling better and kept improving. Makes me wonder if I have just ran too short before, takes me some time to get into the groove as it were. 😉

I have also officially signed up for another half marathon, the Seaford Half, which apparently is scenic but hilly. Uh oh… I need to get the hill workouts in, talking about hills… I found a 10K race that fits nicely into my training plan, this one: Mellieha 10K only drawback is that it is sold as the “hardest 10K on the island”, I guess it is a matter of go big or go home, right? However the hill aspect should be a good test towards the half anyways, but I have actually  run up the hill in Mellieha, and they are not joking it is hardcore!!!

I have no idea how many casual racers there are on this island so I have high hopes of ending last if I do enter, woop!

I am rather getting into the running mantra thing, helps me focus on my technique, which is good and ultimately speeds me up. I am sticking with Caballo Blanco‘s so far (Read Born to Run): Easy, Light, Smooth, Fast. Nice rhythm, and more importantly(!), exactly what I need to hear, again, again, and again….

That’s all for now…
