Comments: Got up at 5am to get out the door by 6. I am overall satisfied with the run and time. I started off slow on purpose and that took some effort not going out hard. But I think it paid off in the end, because I was not dead or walked when I should be running.
Around mile 6 my book on CD (iPod) had some issues, but thank goodness I had brought my Sansa mp3 player with me, switched over to that, and listened to fast paced music. (That was my goal all along, but not until mile 8 lol)
At mile 8 my left leg was getting really tight and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to finish, but told myself to work through it, and it ended up getting better around mile 9. Afterwards though, during my cool off walk, my left calf muscle, and the muscle above the ankle (outside) were hurting pretty good. I think my leg is still sore from ‘rolling’ off the berm on Thursday evening.
I am glad I got out of bed that early to run, because later on in the day the outside temperature gauge in our car read 94! Yikes!
