Last night's run was a tough one again. This is how it went down:
Planned - 2 miles @ 8:40, 2 miles @ 8:10, 2 miles as I felt (expected about 9:00)
Actual - 2 miles @ 8:50, 2 miles @ 8:08, 2 miles as I felt ... 9:57
We're heating up out west again and I picked the warmest part of the day yesterday to run. Certainly felt it in the first two miles. I could barely meet the slower/average pace, how could I go faster for the next section?
I tried to push hard for the "faster" miles, but had barely improved. Took a 20 second stop to drink water and give myself a talking to - then I pushed hard. I was shocked to see at the end that I DID manage to reach my goal, plus a little extra.
The last 2 miles I just took very, very easy and didn't care about pace. I've been having a hard time lately running steady for longer than a mile at a time, so I just wanted to run the whole thing without stopping. The route I took yesterday is a VERY rough road, very pitted. My feet were very sore and still today they are tender. I need to get out on some trails soon! I had 3 ice packs going while watching So You Think You Can Dance last night.
