Feelin' Good, How 'Bout You?

I had an awesome run last night. I wanted to go for one more run before my 5K on Thanksgiving and I wanted to go all out. I haven't been timing my runs for a while since my watch went ker-put, but I finally remembered to grab one the other day. Any guesses as to my time? Drum roll please....... 24:12. That is an 8:04 mile! Yeah! What a vast improvement on my 10 min miles 6 months ago. I revised my time goal for my race on Thursday, now I'm just hoping I have a great run that morning too.
I also had a super day with my eating yesterday. I did 50 (or 60) squats through out the day....I kinda lost track. Today is going to be great too. Now, I gotta get to it.

Before I hurt my foot (tendonitis) I started squats and fell in love! Since the injury I haven't done them even though I'm now healed... kind've forgotten-you have reminded me-thanks. congrats on your time! p.s: thanks for the comment on my blog. Both you & Jo are right; I just needed to hear it.
