Due to some personal considerations, I ran today for a third day in a row. That would have been unthinkable only a couple months ago!
Today's run, back in the corporate fitness center following the flight home, was eight miles in 7:13 a mile. I held the speed constant throughout so there were no theatrics, just a good run. I'm really pleased and surprised at my mileages and paces the past couple of weeks, but the combination of the two have me getting a little concerned about injuries. Nothing showing up yet, but it seems to usually take a day for something to pop up. I'll keep an eye on things, but so far this speeding up with consistent distance has been nothing short of a revelation.
