Short and Sharp

Short and Sharp

Short and Sharp. No, not my temper- though usually it is ๐Ÿ˜‰ but my run this evening!

I thought I should head out, and do a short, sharp threshold run, to see if I can build up some speed in advance of my races in October. And I ran pretty slow by most folks standardsย fast- for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

During my first mile, I kinda forgot that I was supposed to be doing a threshold run, so I managed a mile in 9:27. My second mile was much better, at 9.05, so I was really pleased with that.

It was just as well I only planned to do two miles, as I definitely could not have maintained that for a third mile tonight!

On my way home, I found my first heart! ๐Ÿ˜€ runningtoherdreams has some beautiful pictures of nature’s hearts on her blog, and I’ve been looking for one for weeks. And tonight, I finally found one ๐Ÿ™‚
