I took my new shoesies out for a spin this morning!
Today’s Goal: Run 30 minutes
Distance: 3.05 miles
Average Pace: 9’49”
Best Mile: 9’41” (mile 1)
Worst Mile: 10’00”
Weather: Sun in and out from behind the clouds; reasonably cool but deceptively humid.
How I felt pre-run: Surprisingly good, seeing as it was 6:45am and I am not a morning person by any stretch.
How I feel post-run: Like I’m melting. Seriously. It’s not even that hot in here but I am dripping.
