Back At It!!

I don't know if you have a bad year, or a down year if it recharges you.  I knew I showed up for the run last night with Jerry, and things seemed different.  I mean I was really excited to be running for a reason.  I guess I don't have any solid goals in mind, but I want to improve, and I want to get faster, and I want to run some good races next year.  Barring things outside of our control like illness, and injury, and all kinds of personal issues that might bring us down, what we do in the off season can really help us during the season it seems.  Build a huge base when nothing matters will probably see you in good shape when 5K season starts in March.  I don't know, but I was really pumped to be able to run, with a Marathon in my sight, and other races.  Marathon training should also help me get fast for the other distance races, and I plan on running more races next year. 

Coming into the run yesterday, I guess I was thinking 9:30 pace maybe.  Something like that, but we busted out 4.5 miles @ 8:39 pace.  I was floored by that.  I guess I still have a little something something in the ole cardio system.  I am already starting at a better spot than last year.  Hunger, and desire, and feelings like that are in me.  Although last year sucked ass as far as most things pertaining to running, if it helps me feel more hungry, and more willing to get out there, than that is o.k. by me. 

My run last night, and how I felt about it makes me think perhaps I have been down, and down for a while.  I don't know if readers can tell that or not.  I guess I didn't really think it, but with how I feel now,  I 'd have to say that is the case.  The best part of being down is how awesome you feel when you get back up.  It is like a whole new world. 

So, I am pretty excited about the start of this new season, and new journey for me. 

That is it for today!!!   :)

Sorry I couldn't run with you guys. Sounds like you had a breakthrough run! I'll have to run with you soon before you get too fast again!
