Today's run was short and sweet but fast! I call it the race simulation run. I went out at night to Summit Lakes to run a standard 50 minute run. I went out fast out the gates and hit the turn-around point in about 23 minutes which would average about 6 -6:10 a mile. I wanted to hammer the second-half as fast as I could muster and so I just went for it. I finished the run in 44 minutes and 54 seconds. I split about 5:15 a mile for the last 5k so I was pleased with the effort in the training shoes. Tomorrow I hope to get a nice Sunday run in and I am looking forward to racing the Sooner 10k this upcoming weekend!
