I have been running.......................
Wednesday I ran 5.40 miles/56:00 - avg pace 10:22
I am thinking that the positive splits between mile 2-4 were due to the torrential downpour and the huge puddles I was dodging!! I was also holding my Iphone under my shirt so it didn't get too wet! We were running around a lake that had no sidewalks and the edges of the road filled with puddles quickly! The rain was refreshing, the squishy shoes and socks, not so much!!!
Thursday - easy 3 miles - 31:37 - avg pace - 10:30
My goal, lofty but doable if I have a good race day:
5K - 27:30 - average pace 8:51 ........BUT......
I will be happy if I ;
a) Beat the girl ahead of me in the rankings and
b) Beat my PR by 1 second which would be - 27:46 - avg pace 8:56
