Nice 10 miles today

My wakeup HR was 52 again this morning. I ran 10.2 miles and felt fine. No stopping except one time to take off my wind breaker and tie it around my waist. The temperature was in the high 40s, and it was a cloudy and nice day for running. I finished the 10 miles in 2 hours 8 minutes, about 5 minutes longer than I did the 9 miles on Saturday.

I can tell my body is getting stronger, because my comfortable pace is faster, and I'm beginning to feel like I did 25 years ago during my marathon training -- going mile after mile and feeling great. I plan to run my 3 x 10 miles during January, and then in February and March extending my Saturday long run up to 15 miles. That will give me two 10 miles and one 15 miles per week. I'm thinking of running a half-marathon in May or June. By then I will have run my weekly 15 milers for a couple of months, and I should be able to do the 13.1 miles ok. It would be great if I could do it under 2 1/2 hours...
