6.14 Miles DOWN! :)
“The will to persevere is often the difference between failure and success.” -David Sarnoff
Good afternoon everyone! It’s a beautiful day here in North Florida (and it’s also the famous Florida/ Georgia Football Game Weekend aka- The World’s Largest Cocktail Party).
I woke up at 7:15 this morning, ready to tackle 6 miles! 🙂
I had my pre-run fuel:
I went to the same area I ran last week. This time I studied the course a lot better. I even wrote directions down.
Overall, I am pretty happy with the run. I lagged in energy in the middle of my run, but got an amazing burst of energy towards the end. My splits:Mile 1: 7:55.93 Mile 2: 8:07.85 (16:03.78) Mile 3: 8:50.91 (24:54.69) Mile 4: 9:12.73 (34:07.42)- Got a little lost/ tired Mile 5: 8:25.89 (42:33.32)- Got my energy back Mile 6: 8:29.67 (51:03.00) .14 Mile: 1:06.69 (52:09.69) Total Time: 52:09.69 Average Mile: 8:30
After my run, I headed over to the running store to pick up my race number and t-shirt for my 5k tomorrow. Yes you read that right, I’m doing a 5k tomorrow after running 6 miles today. I honestly don’t think it will be too difficult, I may not PR, but I’m excited to do another race. 🙂 I also picked up a new pair of running shorts. 🙂
I hit some BAD BAD BAD game day traffic on the way back, but I FINALLY made it back to my apartment and made a delicious breakfast (recipe below).
