Run 500 Miles Update: 462 down, 38 to GO!!
Today’s run was #2 for the week. I decided for this to be my long run of the week, and this week it was 4 miles. So my run on Sunday is going to be 3.1 miles again. This way by race time, 3.1 miles is going to be a breeze, and I will be well into my 10K training 🙂
So I started my 4 mile run @ 11:13 a.m. Since I started close to noon, the sun was already high in the sky, and that makes it really hot out. I would rather run earlier when It’s cooler, but today I had a later breakfast, and I like to wait an hour after eating before I run.
I did another neighborhood run. My entry into my log for the day looked a little like this. I ran for 33.28 minutes, and my pace was 8.22 minutes per mile. Not bad at all. I was getting really tired at the end and the additional uphill battle didn’t help, so I turned around and switched up my run a little bit. It started like this and finished like that. Sometimes change is necessary, and it’s better than giving up!
All it all, it was a good run, and I am happy to be running a little further, and to have my longer run done for the week 🙂
