And we’ve come to the last run of the week, which out of all of them happened to be the best one of them all. I went out today with no agenda, just to run. I left all the stresses of the week out there along the river and just tried not to think, just listened to music and let it all go.
Run designation: Long run, easy
Distance: 5 miles
Goal pace: 11 minutes per mile
Actual pace: 11’08”!
Weather: cloudy and mild; windy
How did the run go?
Like I said, this run was the best of the week. Everything felt good and I felt like I was pushing myself but it was a good feeling. 3 of the 5 miles were in the 10 minute mile range, and I could tell when I had slowed down a bit on the 4th mile due to the gusting winds. Overall, I felt really good about this run, and felt fine while running it. I’m hoping this carries over to next week!
