Since I have been pretty steadily turning in 20 minute intervals I decided today was the day to push by that by any amount I could. I made it to 22 minutes. And at that moment, when I had nearly completed my circuit and was nearly back at work, all the sudden there was magic. Suddenly breathing was easy, and running wasn't hard, and I felt like I could keep going....for how long I don't know, but I could have kept on. It was so cool! But I was nearly back at work, and I needed a cool down time and I have a full day, so I went back to work. My running friend says that is the famous runner's high kicking in. I can believe it, but usually it doesn't kick in until after I am done. Man, I've got to chase that again! Wednesday if I don't get rained out I am going to plan for longer.
