6 miles. I didn’t get up in time this morning to do my run before church. I went to bed Saturday night at 9:30 and didn’t get up today until 7:00. I am not sure, but I guess I needed some sleep. After my run today I still felt like I needed sleep, so I took a nap and got up feeling icky. Don’t ya hate getting up from a nap and feel like you built a house, ran a marathon, toured the world and then ate a ton of sugar?? No, just me?? :)
Let’s break my run down shall we:
Mile One: 9.33
Mile two: 9.41
Mile three: 10.07 (had to stop to remove pull-over)
Mile four: 9.47
Mile five: 9.48
Mile six: 9.53
Total time: 58.53
Average pace: 9.47
I felt great during each mile, but mile five was the hardest to get through. I am not sure why, but I felt really tired and doubt of finishing started to creep in. Every ache that I was feeling became that much more noticeable. I quickly distinguished as to whether or not it was an actual pain or just a tired ache and moved on.
Have a great night!
