I’m not sure if I can count this as a “run” but I did get out there and move for 12 miles.
I ran with a girl from work who I don’t normally run with. We didn’t get out at 7:30 like I’d wanted to because, well, we felt like sleeping in. And after a number of texts at 7:20am half asleep, we decided that 1pm would be a better time to go.
- Mile 1 9:51 (yikes – I know slow for her, but fast for moi!)
- Mile 2 10:18
- Mile 3 12:15
- Mile 4 11:26
- Mile 5 11:53
- Mile 6 14:22 (this is where it starts to get embarrassing, and involving a
bitlot of walking)
- Mile 7 12:42
Mile 8 13:21 (after this, uncharted territory this year!)
- Mile 9 13:02
- Mile 10 13:11
- Mile 11 17:31 (yep, got to talking and walked this whole mile!)
- Mile 12 12:24 (got chest pains off and on since mile 6.5ish, this is most of the reason why I walked, that and it’s SO hard to get moving again when you’ve been walking!)
- Mile 0.05 00:57
So, that’s how it broke down. The first two miles were flying! But I was having a harder time talking and well, neither one of us was running with an ipod so we were relying on each other for entertainment. I really had a good time. It’s just one of those runs that you envisioned being “just amazing” and the running portion was “just okay/if you can call that running” you know what I mean? After mile 6.5 ish I was having a hard time running, I think because when we were running, it was so much faster than my normal 10:30s, it was more in the low 10s to high 9s. So, I slowed it down and walked. Meh. What do I expect when I haven’t really run since before my vacation? Really?
Okay, gots to get to bed for my indoor tri tomorrow at 7:40! I’m wave three. Talk to ya’ll after that!
