Comments: Yeah, I know a 10:08 pace is not really speedy, considering there are people that run twice as fast as I do…but hey…for ME it’s speedy.
We stayed home today to put a deck onto the house. My main priority was to get my 5 miler in though, and I did. It went well. I was worried about my left calve muscle, it’s been hurting again, but it was fine. My right one tightened up a bit, but after mile 2 that went away as well.
The most surprising part were my splits, usually I am ALL OVER the place, not this time, Baby!
Mile 1: 10:13 (including nasty dog encounter)
Mile 2: 10:14
Mile 3: 10:03
Mile 4: 10:01
Mile 5: 10:11 (Again, nasty dog encounter)
The nasty neighbor dog and I seem to have to come to an agreement: He sees me, charges at me, I start to slow down to a casual walk, and he’ll just bark at me, trailing off after a minute or so. I guess I am boring after all. Good!
I should rest tomorrow, but might run 3 in the early AM, however I reserve the right to change my mind. 😉 I do will lift some weights tonight. On the other hand, lugging all that lumber should count towards something!
