Running better, Running faster

I’m out of town and can’t run.  I’m a little bummed about that.

Tuesday was my last run and it my running keeps getting better (finally).  I am sticking to my 5 mile route for now and the mountain on the weekend.  Tuesday, I went out slow at first.  As I got going, I started feeling better and stronger.

Here are the splits:

 

8:19 Pace

8:19 Pace

My legs felt strong.  My hip felt good overall.  It always seems to bug me a little more at the end of my runs, but not much.

So at an 8:19 overall pace, this was the best 5 miles I’ve run in my neighborhood in a long time.

So, is it the mountain running or the ACV (apple cider vinegar)?  Yes, I am still doing both.  Either way, I am getting good results and am excited about my race at the Country Music Half Marathon in April.  I do need to work on my long runs though.  I still stop at 8 miles after going up the mountain and back.  I would like to add more miles to that soon.  That should wear my legs out well.

Anyway, no running yesterday, but I hope to get home before dark so I can run today.

I hope you all are happy and running.  I also hope to get back reading blogs soon.

  1. Your cadence looks good. Is that what it’s always been?

    I’m sure the hill running has contributed a ton. Also, I started trying the cider vinegar. I don’t know if it’s helped yet, but it hasn’t hurt 😉

    • Thanks. Sadly I got home in time, but I had two cars in two different shops for problems and spent hours waiting to pick them up. So no running again yesterday. I can really tell an attitude shift when I can’t run. Today it is going to rain all day, but Lord willing, I’ll be out there anyway.
