A beautiful afternoon run today and it was so nice being out there in the nice sun, it does a body and soul good! A few weeks ago my Step-son Mason threw down a challenge to me to run 1.50 in under 10 and a half minutes, he is on the high school soccer team and they had to run that to make the team. Mason did it in 9:42, which is pretty quick. I knew it would be tough to accomplish with my lack of speed training but I had to show him that I could do it! So today was the day, I headed out towards mini gu corner I warmed up with 1. 5 miles and then I went for it. I had some head wind so I knew it was going to be close and I kind of eased into it as not to over do it. I was feeling pretty good after a mile but I was struggling towards the end and my HR at the end was up over 170, so I would say that is my V02 max! I did it in 10:18 and I was pretty stoked because he wasn't giving me much of a chance!!!  I think with a little bit of training I could get it down under 10 minutes, but that remains to be seen. After the victory I just cruised home, average pace for the run was 8:00 and my HR average was 154, total time was 48:53. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for 22 minutes, no resistance and the pace was moderate. I feel really good about today and hopefully I can walk tomorrow;)

See ya later.
