In a back-to-back today, I ran even better than yesterday. The strange part of this is that as I was running yesterday I told the fitness center staffer that I doubted I would run very fast today since yesterday was so quick. So much for that prediction. Today was seven miles in 6:55 a mile. I started with the usual quarter mile warmup, then starting over and put the treadmill on 6:53 a mile and stayed there for seven miles. The slightly slower time was due to the startup of the machine. No guns and blocks for this guy!
I'll take tomorrow off no matter what. These two days, while both runs felt great and no injury issues, had to have spent me.
