I set out this morning (6:50a.m.) for my scheduled 7 miles. I had a new route planned, PB Toast in my belly, well rested legs and was ready for a good run! And a good run I had!
Today’s RUNdown: 5.8mi, 47:00min., about an 8:10 pace
So about those 7 miles…I use mapmyrun.com to map out my runs, and had planned a little over a 7 mile route (I like to end my runs with a few minutes of walking, followed by stretching). I ran at a pace that felt good, and enjoyed the beautiful morning. I knew I had a solid pace, but there was definitely something off when I finished in 47 minutes, that would have been a 7 minute mile! After yesterdays run, I knew this wasn’t true.
I still felt great, so I came home, showered and ate (Green Monster, no doubt!) I re-mapped the run. Still said 7 miles, so when I left to run errands I clocked it, and my route rang in at a solid 5.8 miles. Slightly annoying, but it was a good run, so I’m not worrying about it. I want to meet my mileage for the week, so maybe I’ll get a short run in on Friday or something…no biggie!
Posting early because I close at work tonight, bleh! Hasta manana bloggies!
