Overnight success

All of a sudden I think my plan is working!

Overnight??  Ha Ha!  No.

I came up with this plan in December 2009 after my Memphis marathon.  I put it in motion January 2010.  It is now April 2011. 

Countless hours of working out.  Of believing.  Of re-evaluating and then re-evaluating again.  Of injuries, setbacks, and plateaus.

This morning when I was doing a 3 miler, I glanced down on my garmin to see a “7” appear as the first number on my minute/mile pace.  Oh yes.  I did a double take.  I knew that I was running fast but I was not sprinting or going all out; I was breathing well and feeling good.  I have hit 7’s before but it has been awhile.  Based on how I felt, I now think that I am getting to the point where I can go Faster – easier.  And that is what I want.  That is where I have been headed.  If I can maintain a faster pace, easier, that will make a big difference in my next marathon.

Shaun T is my hero.
