Yay Me!

Please forgive me for a minute while I pat myself on the back.  It's starting to be crazy hot (read 102 degrees at 8p, 82 degrees at 7a) and the thought of running outside at noon has me heading straight to the treadmill.

I decided to work on speed this week.  My run today was on random incline and intervals.  According to my handy dandy Nike + app I broke not one but 3 PR's.  I recorded my fastest 1k at 4:44 seconds, my fastest mile at 8:22 and my fastest 5k at 26:42.  While I will be the first to acknowledge it's not record breaking, it is fairly impressive for me.  It indicates forward progress and beating my own records is good enough for me.  

I'm generally not happy with my pace, but today I am quite pleased with how it went.  Now, if I could just get my treadmill time to translate to road time.
