New Toy

It's almost Friday!!!! Finding motivation for the last easy weekday run on Thursday's is not the easiest, but I managed to get my butt out the door first thing this morning for my run.

I was in for a special treat today since I was itching to try out my newest toy! I decided to try out my new SpiBelt that came in earlier this week.

Worked great, sat exactly where I wanted and didn't budge! I can't believe I didn't get one sooner!
So another fun fact about today's run was the rain. It was tapering off just as I was starting and the slight drizzle plus 75* temps made for a fabulous run, and I found paces that I thought had been permanently lost from my easy runs.

6 Miles- 55:11, Avg pace 9:11, Avg HR 162
Mile 1-  9:43
Mile 2-  9:27
Mile 3-  9:21
Mile 4-  9:19
Mile 5-  8:51
Mile 6-  8:30

If nothing else this made me SOOO excited for fall. I was afraid that even 4 weeks of marathon training had hindered my ability to naturally run quicker, but it seems it has just been the weather slowing me down. I started easy and comfortable and finished easy and comfortable, I was shocked to keep seeing my pace keep dropping so consistently, but I felt great and it was a perfect confidence building easy run.

Here is today's cute Peachie Picture, she was reading today, attempting to stimulate her intellectual side!


  1. Nice negative splits! She is sooo cute!

  2. You had a much better Thursday run then me. Great job!!!
