It's fun to put my miles down for each of the last five Aprils and see my progress. If history means anything, my average April in 2010 will be in the 6s. But, as they say in the stock market, past performance does not guarantee the future.
April 2009 is the second consecutive month where I have averaged a sub 8:00-mile pace for the month, and the fastest month I've ever had. No doubt, running two 5Ks in under 20 minutes and last weekend's sub 1:40 half marathon are big reasons why my average for the month is so fast.
I've got one more planned race for the foreseeable future: A 10K Saturday morning. And then, I'll concentrate on building my base back up, run more miles a little slower than I'm running them now.
