I really wanted to get out there today since I was not able to run over the past three days (due to family commitments). So, after breakfast, I went for a 5K run.
I took my “harder” route again.
The first 1.3 miles felt real easy. Then it got a little harder about a half-mile later. Yet, I caught my pace and had some steam left for the end. In total, I ran the 3.1 miles in 26 minutes and 31 seconds.
At the end, when I stopped, I felt like I was going to puke – seriously. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not?
In any event, getting out there and running the whole thing is good. I have a race next weekend. Next goal is to run my “hardest” route, running all the way, three times this week before the race. If I can get that done, I will be very confident heading into the weekend.
