3 miles @9:55 pace
After the run, I walked 1.5 miles (killer hills)
Ran the first mile in 8:48! That's right, I said 8 minutes 48 seconds. ANNNND, I didn't feel as though I would die. So that was mile one. Then the hills started, and lasted through the next 2 miles. I hate hills. They are killing my poor hip. I'm not going to let them bust my groove, though. This is the 5th run in a row with mile one being in the 8s. Go me, go me, go me!
I am so proud of myself for sticking with running. I remember back in May of 2009. It was so difficult those first few weeks & months. Gasping for air. Everything ached. I couldn't even make it to the end of my very short cul-de-sac. Things have change a lot in 18 months.
It was a great evening to run! We heard it was supposed to dump rain all evening, and planned for an indoor treadmill run. However, with 46 degree temps & no rain, we hit the road.
HILLS! Oh my dear God...I hate hills. They kill my hip. I have got to get stronger with hill work. Hill fartleks, here I come!
