Technically today is a rest day. But I've got my schedule all screwed up again. And since I have said numerous times over the last couple of days that I was going to get my miles in this week, I decided to run a few miles as hard as I could. I had 20 free minutes. That's it. I can run 2 miles in 20 minutes no problem, right? Right. Now was this the smartest thing to do with my shin pain? I don't know. They hurt no matter what I do, so I might as well run...super fast!
I finished in 17:90 minutes. That's a 8:95 minute mile. Yeaaaa!
I have no intention of trying to run a 9 minute mile when doing my long runs. I just knew this was only 2 miles so I gave it my all...just to see what I could do. AND I think I probably could have finished even sooner but someone was burning leaves in the neighborhood and my throat and lungs were not feeling so great. Either way...I rocked it!
As fast as you can.
