6 miles @ home (11:46)

23 Jun

Time: 7:30 am

Weather: mid 60’s, nice, sunny

Clothes: Brooks shorts, Brooks short sleeve technical shirt

Shoes: Izumi Pearl

Distance: 6.03 miles

Time: 1:10:53

Split: 11:46

Course: Past 188 and back.

Comments: I so wanted to skip this run. I thought to myself “It’s only 6 miles, I can skip this run.” Then I thought “Ok, just run 4 miles should do it.” But then my better, inner half came through and thought “Don’t cheat yourself of the run, you only will hurt yourself in the long run”. So I went out and did it with a negative split time 36:35 the first three miles and 34:02 (1:10:37 = 6 miles) the second 3 miles. Wo-hoo!!!

I did not GU. Had a dog that ran after me just before mile 3, he was a friendly fella (thank God!), but my hands smelled pretty darn bad afterwards and I didn’t want to GU! I just drank my Gatorade instead.

I have some toe pains right now, but not too bad.
