    good Eminem 8.22 mi 01:30 10:56 pace

    This was one of those "could keep on going forever" kind of runs. I kept cycling through various paces, never getting discouraged by the slow stretches because I knew I'd find a spe... read more

    I'm doing my best to stay positive when I have slow runs. I look at my watch and say "It's fat burning time!" when I see those 11+min/miles.

      hahaha yeah. I want to watch the fat melt off my butt in the heat while I run! The heat and humidity just sucks it right out of you, doesn't it?!

      I'm pretty sure I know exactly where you were because I have done the same damn thing there. I've complained to the powers that be (the one that I live with, anyway :-) about how poorly the top end of that trail is marked! The non-trail looks like a trail, is straight ahead, and has flagging, while the real trail takes a steep jog to the left without a clear blaze to mark it!

      noooo! No summer colds. Boo. :(

      However, runs are certainly good for clearing out the gunk - even if the positive effects are short-lived. Good work getting out and doing it.
