This afternoon, I took a run on the Embarcadero, as I often do. It was great weather for running, but a bit windy. Since my run was right after yoga class, I started off a bit dazed, and I was running more slowly than usual. As I started the last mile, I realized that everyone had been passing me. I turned on some loud rock music, and picked up the pace, and I finished my last mile in 7 minutes, 5 seconds. I also passed many of the runners who had been passing me.
One of these days, I’d like to do a sub-35 minute 5 mile. Also, I’d like to see if I could still do a sub-6 minute one mile. I’d better get on it soon, because I have a feeling I’ll get slower as I get older.
