5 is the New 3

When I started running last September, 3 miles seemed to be a good “average” run, which was before than, my own long distance record. Now that I am in second round of training, I am hoping a 5 mile jaunt becomes “just an everyday run”.

So today I ran 5 miles- my loop around Chaparral Lake, over to the Canals and around to Granite Reef Road. My pace was a bit stronger than the “just keep moving” shuffle I was doing in October. It felt good to be out, a week after the Rock and Roll Half Marathon.

And it was a bit faster than I have ever run this loop.

One day at a time.
