Picking Up The Pace

I had a really good run today; it felt like I was actually working and pushing myself a little. Of course to start out the run my iPod froze up on me. I noticed that after a few seconds following the “Workout beginnning” announcement there was no music. So of course I had to stop and reset the thing… I can’t run without my tunes! I’ve been running in the 11:00 minute mile range, but today I actually picked it up a bit. The final average pace was 10’45” per mile and that includes a pretty decent slowdown towards the end because of a side cramp. Well, click the graph below to see a larger version… if you want.
