I’m on a roll with posts today! I guess the trick is to keep them short and sweet.
Tuesday, September 22 – 5 mile run (Saucony)
RunningLaur organized a virtual race for the first day of fall. I was actually planning to do cross and strength training at the gym yesterday, but my wrist and elbow joints were hurting so I adjusted my schedule and went for a run instead. Originally I was only going to do a 5k for the virtual race, but I decided to extend my run and go for the five miles. My goal was to finish in 60 minutes. I was blessed with surprisingly cool weather last night and a nice breeze. The run itself was pretty boring – just me and my iPod doing 3+ laps around the neighborhood. Oh, but I did have a weird encounter. There’s a small greenbelt alongside my neighborhood and I ran past a guy walking his dog. I’m almost certain that as I passed he said “Run Forrest Run”. I get the reference, but I have no idea why he said it.
- Mile 1 – 11:50
- Mile 2 – 12:13
- Mile 3 – 12:11
- Mile 4 – 11:29
- Mile 5 – 11:13
Total time: 58:55. I’m happy I made my goal… yay!
