Running strong

I had another strong and exhilarating run this morning. I managed to get it in before the rain started up again. The running has ratcheted up a notch, definitely. It's so often that way with a sport - things are continually moving among plateauing, backsliding, and improving. So I'm enjoying the feeling of significant improvement while I have it! WOW!

Tomorrow I'll do 8 miles for the first time since the half. (That seems like it was ages ago.) When it's been a while since I've done any distance runs I start to get worried that I somehow won't be able to. My confidence is a pretty fleeting thing since I don't have much of a running history to draw upon.
