Duathlons and Running Fast

I competed in the Wrentham, Ma. Halloween Duathlon and something happened to me. I started running ‘fast.’ I had been running 8:30minute miles, and now I am running sub 8 easily.

In the duathlon, I finished the 3mile run, 11mile ride, 2mile run in under an hour and twenty minutes.

More importantly I ran 8.2 miles today in an hour and three minutes. Which is 7:40minute miles. Which is nice for running so far. My goal of a three and half hour marathon in 2008 does not seem so bad anywhere.

Not sure why I became faster all of the sudden, but I like it.
