Farther and Faster · 1 March 2013

This week I ran farther and faster than I ever remember running. I am not sure if it is an anomaly or a problem reading the clock or progress, so I want to write about it before I find out otherwise.

This week, I ran a couple days during the middle of the week. I ran a couple routes that our track and field coach told me about. One route was 4.8 miles and the other 4.5. I ran them in 40 and 37 minutes, respectively. About the same times as I had been running 3.5 to 4.0 miles just last week. When I got in the first day, I figured I read the clock wrong or that the distance was incorrect. But after much contemplation, second guessing, and asking, I determined that they were. The second day, I still could not believe the clock. Even though I was sure of the time. It might seem odd, but I was more confused than excited about the results.

I know I just recently wrote about running farther and faster, but I had not had any major breakthroughs yet. I am still not sure I have. I am still not sure the two days were not just an aberration in the data or a problem reading the clock. So before I find out any differently, I will say that I am running farther and faster than I ever have.
