I just got back from today's run. It probably was supposed to be a bit longer, like 4.5 miles, but since it snowed last night, I was a little bummed. I ended up running a pretty common loop that Jenn and I have run several times. It is 3.7 miles long. The wind was pretty rough for the first half, but then it died down for the last bit. I didn't really have a time goal, other than staying under 8:30's. It wasn't that bad of a run, really. I had to squint because little snowflakes and sleet kept nailing me in they eyes. My mind was telling me to stop, but my legs just kept going! That's a good thing right?
At the 5k mark, I glanced down at my Garmin and saw 24:20. Now don't laugh, but that's probably one of my fastest 5k's. The last half mile was pretty fast, and I finished 3.7 miles in 28:35 at an average of 7:47min/miles! I think that's pretty good for a non-runner like myself.
Thanks for reading!
