Track Run

1275 miles on the Nike plus site since I started April 21, 2010

Yesterday was cooler, in the high 60's, which made running much more enjoyable.  I ran on the rubberized track and managed to run 6 miles with an average pace of 8 minute mile.  I was surprised how much my pace quickened when compared to my last few runs.  The cooler weather made my 8 minute pace feel easy.  The amount of effort put into the run did not seem much different from the prior few runs, yet my pace changed from a 10 minute mile to an 8 minute mile. 

I am also keeping track of what I am eating, to see how that affects my performance.  I believe a high protein diet increases my performance.  Greek yogurt and some Kashi products offer good protein without too much fat or sugar.
