They say ...

doing the same thing over and over and expecting to get a different result is the definition of insanity.

And I am here to tell you: they are wrong.

I ran a timed mile about a month ago, ya know, just to see where I was at without really having ran more than 10 times in the last year.  I ran so slow that my fourth-grade PE mile time was 1.5 minutes faster. Haha!

Last night I decided to run another timed mile, having ran two or three times since the last timed mile {and when I say "run", I mean 20 minutes at 10 minute pace}.

And guess what!

I ran 11 seconds faster. 

Still 1.25 minutes slower than my fourth-grade time, buuuut whatev.

Faster is faster and having done nothing to deserve running 11 seconds faster, I am happy.

Plus, it is Friday. So I am super happy! The end.
