I can't believe it--I improved my pace by 26 seconds/mile, down to 10:34 a mile! My next "little goal" has been 10:30 ("big goal" 10:00); can't believe how close I got today!
The reason it's so surprising is this--I did NOT want to run today. I didn't enjoy my run. I considered quitting in the middle.
I'm glad I got out of bed and kept putting one foot in front of the other!
