And I don't know why

I went out yesterday for a calm 5 mile run. I didn't have anything in mind other than seeing if I could run for an hour or so.

Funny, because before I hurt my knee I was up to running over 4 hours. But, that was then; this is now.

Anyway, I got out there [with the Garmin] and noticed that my pace was about 12:20 per mile using R5/W1. I played around to see if I could get that pace down closer to a 12 minute pace.

I ended up doing the 5 miles in 60 minutes are 50 seconds - or a 12:10 pace. AMAZING. I don't know why. I don't know how. And I don't care.

Jenny and I are off to St. Louis [the last motorcycle ride of the season] for Thanksgiving. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Hi John, Thank you for the Thanksgiving cheer and news of your happy stay at home sweet home. The knee sounds like it is mending OK. Some times just a little time and some ice is all it needs to get that back into shape. Glad to see you are enjoying your Garmin. Mine turned out to be one of the best purchases of running gear that I ever made, for the same reason that you mentioned... to keep me honest on pace. I hope you make your way back down to Phoenix for the PF Chang in January. By then, I am guessing that you will be ready to thaw out again anyway.
Have a great holiday!
Steve in Phoenix
