Nice. But don't push too hard. We know from the past what happens when Semetary goes to crazy on the running fast! Make sure you got some nice and easy runs in there to rest up.

Those are some nice paces you got there. I like to push myself every few weeks to see where I stand, but like Mrs_Loomis, mine are much slower. It's great to see you're pretty much back where you were at and that's definitely something to be happy about.

I do the same thing (although much, much slower!) I also test myself with strength training, too---often surprising myself with how much I can lift.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. ~Colossians 3:23-24

I wanted to test myself out today and boy, did I!
My last race was at the end of May - a half marathon in Hyannis that I ran at a solid 7:29.7 pace. :-)
(aka the race that shelved my running for the summer)

My last 10k, in February, I ran at a 7:20 pace.

So today I was determined to find out where I stand, fitness wise and speed wise. I did a 6 mile run with a planned slow down after mile 5.

My splits were 8:04, 7:40, 7:29, 7:28 and 7:36 respectively with an overall 7:39 pace. :-)

That's 19 seconds slower than my 10k pace earlier this year but not too shabby. I want to get back to that pace and the only way to do that is to bust out of the comfort zone on a semi-regular basis and see how hard I can go.
I feel pretty good about the run today. I'm happy with the times and look forward to picking those up as I close in on the 5k trail run I'm doing next month.

Speaking of which, my only other 5k was also earlier this year and also a trail run, which I finished in 23:36 which was a pretty solid 7:36 pace over uneven terrain. I'd like to match that or better it if possible.

:-)
