I ran again tonight (I have a lot of frustration from work lately) only this time, because the weather was gorgeous, I ran outside, in my neighborhood.

I did my normal 3.5-mile loop, but pushed myself extra hard, and managed an average 9:33 pace for the first 3 miles, finishing the 3.5 miles in 34:28 (9:50 pace average — had to walk part of the last half-mile).

I’m proud of myself for the past two runs.
