First serious run: 6mi in 1hr TM

Almost forgot to rlog today! I had only planned on 3-4mi today but it felt pretty good after the 4th mile and I decided to my traditional training run routine of 6mi/1hr. Its funny that the 2nd mile felt pretty bad and then 3rd, 4th and 5th mile felt effortless. Even heavy breathing settled down, despite small increase in speed at end at 6.2mph.
I think this will be a huge help for my first race of the year, 4 mi race this sunday. I may be in worse shape due to the excersion but I will be more motivatated to get out in chilly/snowy weather. I think motivation will be my biggest danger. Once out there I can survive for 4 miles no problem
