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.
