Jeff’s Post – Nice Pace!
For a very long time I have been posting a picture of my almost daily treadmill runs on facebook. I know some find it annoying (they can choose not to be my facebook friend) but I find it motivating and I find that it keeps me honest. I have also heard from many others that it motivates them, which I love. I typically start the treadmill and walk for first ¼ mile to get warmed up and then I also walk at the end for a very short distance so if you look at my times they look a bit slow. This week I decided to change that. Now I do a short ¼ mile walk to warm up and then reset the treadmill and start off at my running pace. Yesterday, Tamara made a comment on my 6 mile run (nice pace). It wasn’t super speedy but I loved that she made that comment which brought me to this morning. I wanted to blow yesterday’s pace out of the water and I did – knocking over 3 minutes off my time from yesterday – BAM!
Thanks Tamara for the motivation and for pushing me past average!!
Have a great day and go for a run if you get a chance!
