What Would You Do For An Extra 6 Minutes?

I started out early, 6:51 AM to be exact. My plan was to run 6 miles at an easy ten minute pace, but then I started thinking...

I don't have a lot of time today, but if I run 9 minute miles, then I'll have an extra 6 minutes to clean up! So that's what ran through my head, six minutes, six minutes and look what I got for my splits: 9:14, 9:04, 8:44, 8:43, 8:56, and 8:58/mile.

Yahoo! I got my extra 6 minutes!


  1. Good thinking on the pacing, what did you do with your extra six minutes? Eat something yummy?

  2. Amazing how we find ways to motivate ourselves, isn't it! Congrats on the extra 6 minutes!!

  3. Actually, nothing special...I had plenty of time to clean myself up, made the bed and cleaned up the breakfast dishes. Kind of boring, but nice to come back home to a clean house later - except for the unpacked boxes. ; )
