8 on the 8th, or in my case 10 by the 10th!



While checking out Shoreturtle's blog, I came across a post about a virtual run called "8 on the 8th".
Here is a link:

It pretty relaxed rules, since I had an off day yesterday, the 8th, I've decided to do my little part as 10 by the 10th.
Today I had to run 4 miles, and I'm running tomorrow, so that's my 10.

The part I ran today, my 4 mile run, was felt like nothing,since my training runs have all been 6 miles or more. I felt like it was a warm-up, and I'm done.
The weather this morning was more like September, not the beginning of August, and I'm not complaining one bit!
I did my 4.09 miles in 35:04, all in the 8 min range.. my contribution to the "8's".
Lap/Mile
1 8:46 1.00
2 8:44 1.00
3 8:43 1.00
4 8:12 1.00
.09 :37 0.09

Tomorrow, I'll do my 6 miles, to make it 10 on the 10th!

Nice work on that 4 miler. The cooler weather rocks for running, but I hate to say goodbye to summer.

Say goodbye to summer? WAH! We still have 2 months of summer left!

Like you, running in the fall weather actually is better than running in summer. I noticed that I fare better when temperature is cooler. I can't wait for the fall foilage!
