I feel good about this race. I tried to stick to 7:20 pace or under on my vivoactive watch. First mile was 7:21, second 7:13, third 7:08.

I'm so happy about that. There was a patch in the second mile where my pace went as slow as 7:35. So I tried to speed up. So I was relieved when my second mile alert popped up as 7:13.

I pushed it hard, almost threw up at the end. It was not my PR, but at least in the same league. Happy!

I ran tonight because there is a 5k in the morning. I've been running a lot so I would have thought I could be pretty fast. But as I read my blog here I realized I was quite a bit faster 2 years ago. 

My goal for tomorrow is under 7:30 pace. If I can do 7:20 pace, my time will be under 23 minutes. That's a good goal and one that will push me. I'm not quite to that speed yet. 2 years ago I did 7:11 pace at this time of year. So I have some work to do to get back in that kind of shape. Still, I feel good and am happy with my progress. I had a baby 10 months ago and feel fairly fit. So I will shoot for 7:20 pace in the morning. Here goes! I'll report later!
