Return To Forest Park

Not having been here since April 5 brought a nostaglic tear to my eye.
However, it was Bonnie and Steve's eyes that saw me tear. Tear out that is.

Tonight, Bonnie's drill was to focus on speedwork. She had mentioned that Steven said he was pretty fast, and that we, as a team, hadn't had fast workouts in awhile.

I got there with my Asics, and mindset. And we took off.

Visualization is a powerful weapon. Today I visualized all of my amazing moments for the month of June. Result? I ran my fastest miles since I was 19 years old. I am in the MACHINE mode now for sure!!!!

Amazingly I did 2 of the 3 miles in 6:02! At one point I was pacing at 5:06 per mile. Insane.

Was the swimming helping my aerobic capabilities? What is going on with me?

Steven and Bonnie finished around 8 minutes.

Kinda disappointing was the fact that there were only 3 people (including me) at the Wednesday night run.

I miss Queens. Nice neighborhood.
