I felt FAST today

Wow, what a day! I can tell my legs and body are remembering how to run – I felt FAST today! I was running tall, feet hitting the pavement & bouncing off quickly, I felt very fit & efficient – it was so FUN. It's the first time I've felt that since starting to run again.

Did 8 miles, around 7:20ish pace. To most, that may not seem fast, but I generally take my easy runs pretty darn slow (7:50-8, sometimes even slower). So to be clipping away at 7:20 without effort, and FEELING like I did, is pretty noteworthy for me.

And the best part? The Achilles isn’t sore walking around today (and it’s been two days running in a row!)!!!!! Yahoo, do a happy dance!!!!
