>hot, sticky run
>I thought I was prepared for today’s run.
I had plenty of water to drink. I started drinking my gatorade at about 4:30, like usual.
I had options for clothing.
I just wasn’t prepared for the heat!
And my calves were tight the whole time.
And after 2 miles the arch on my left foot hurt!
A few times, the entire group circled around to get me …. and they all ran behind me. UGH! It pushed me to run faster ….. and then I had to walk! But not until they all passed me. (=
And …. I wore compression shorts and over shorts …. and the over shorts rode up!! Irritating! Definitely why I wanted a skirt!
Now, I’ve got an awful pain in my neck.
But, I ran, I didn’t go home. And I didn’t stop and get frozen yogurt and candy!!!
3.26 miles in 48:04 …. not bad for as difficult as the run was
Average pace – 14:45
Mile 1 – 13:47
Mile 2 – 15:29
Mile 3 – 16:10
Mile 3-3.26 – 6:56
This can’t be right …….. doesn’t add up!! My Garmin should be here today or tomorrow!!! Super excited!!! Hopefully K will take time to teach me how to use it! She seems to have it under control!
