Last night Eric and I ran 9.25 miles, 2.25 miles more than my previous personal record! We ran 6 miles a few days ago, but I was feeling pretty tired and wasn’t up to running much further. Last night, however, I felt good the whole way. In fact, by the end of the run I still wasn’t all that tired but my knees were starting to feel sore. Regardless, we stepped up the pace a bit in that last quarter mile and sprinted for a strong finish!We haven’t been running super fast… perhaps just under a 10 minute mile… but we keep a surprisingly steady pace. My heart rate usually goes up to around 185 and stays there during the majority of the run.
