Missed it by that much...!!!

Today, I went out for a little tempo run and here's what happened.
Mile 1 was basically my warm up at 11:37
Mile 2 picked it up at 10:09 (what? I almost broke a 10 min mile, I can do it!)
Mile 2.5 was 5:49 (recovering a little bit)
Mile 3.5 kicked it up again at 10:34 (still doing good, I can break that 10 min mark!)
Mile 4.5 finished at 10:01 (OHHHH! Missed it by that much!!!)
Dang, I almost had it! I can't remember the last time I ran under a 10 min./mile but now I know that I can do it. Even though I was running at the top of Z3 and some Z4 it's possible. Besides you have to run faster to get faster and you have to push yourself. I really thought I was sucking air but it was more of not relaxing and breathing, so I focused on relaxed shoulders, breath, keep them feet turning over. Overall, Great job if I do say so myself! (patting on the back)
Tonight, it's back to the Rodeo to see Toby Keith. I know, I know, some of you haven't found the love for sad country songs where your dog dies, your wife leaves you, you get fired and get drunk but Toby actually kicks up his music and is a little on the extreme side and pushes the limits and he's a Ford Truck Man..(if you seen the commercials, lol)
Oh, and last night I got it in my head to clean out the garage for Heavy Trash pick up today, so I was out there for about 3 hours throwing crap away that was left in there from the previous owner (I rent my mother in-laws house, which she bought a several years ago and it's just been in there taking up space because no one wanted to go through it, including me since I have been here for 4 years! But now that my motorcycle is in there and I have to bring my 1970 Chevelle SS396 out of storage and use my garage I had to clean it out, oh, and the little 2 or 3 possums I have seen in there trying to make it a nice little house inspired me to clean it!)
So last night after cleaning the garage and trying to sleep my right low back was cramping so sleeping was not fun at all as I could not get comfortable and need some chiro work done, really a massage to relax those muscles but just had to tough it out! Better now though.
Have a great Tuesday!!! Rockon`

Sorry, dude, I agree with allez. AND this is coming from someone who graduated from Texas A&M in the late 90's, so I had to endure an awful lot of country music. XM has changed my life! Ha ha. :)

That 10 minute mile is a monkey on my back, too! There's something genetically imprinted on all my muscle cells that just won't let it go. Ah well, we get there anyway!
