After breakfast, I went for a 5K run today. It wasn’t too cold, 45° F; but, the wind was gusting at 12 MPH.
I got hit by the 2.8 mile mark bug again. This time it was at 2.86 miles. But, rather than stop dead, I didn’t stop my Forerunner and I walked for about 5 seconds. Then, I started running again and covered the rest of the 3.1 miles at my normal pace. Total time for the 5K was 25 minutes and 56 seconds.
As a bonus, I walked and ran, switching on and off, for about eight-tenths of a mile after the 5K.
I really let the hill, wind and my mind get the better of me out there today. It’s a shame that I could not keep running. But, at least I didn’t stop dead and got right back to it.
