The day started off with an ear ache and total feeling of yuckiness, but shortly before lunch it started getting better.
The run, which was 4 miles (4.07) today, lasted 46 minutes and 14 seconds. That is a split time of 11:21, the best in months! I checked my Garmin and went all the way back to December, nothing comes close to it.
It was windy outside, but the temperature was around 60 degrees and overcast. After about 2 miles I noticed rain clouds in the distance. 1/2 mile later it started raining. It wasn’t sprinkling, but rather hard, big raindrops started pouring down. To be honest, I enjoyed it, because once you are wet you can’t get any wetter (and it cooled me off)! lol My biggest worry was that my contacts might come out, but my sun glasses (which I wear come rain or shine) helped with keeping some of the water out of my eyes.
Afterwards I did some stretching of the muscles in the gym. So, overall it was a very positive run. Tomorrow is a rest day and then 5 mile race! 🙂
