So yesterday I got home and was ready to hit the road! I wanted to try a different route and I wasn't sure how long it would be, but I knew it had to be around 5 miles. After the last run with my friend, I knew I could do at least three miles without stopping so that was the goal. The first mile was pretty easy. Mile two was a little difficult, the mile-barrier I had to push though! Mile three was pretty easy, so I decided to keep on trucking. I went for 5 miles straight. Let me say this again... I ran 5 miles without stopping! My pace started out at 10:20 something, and every miles went up around 10 seconds. I was determined to finish with under an 11 minute pace - 10:58!
With today being National Running Day, I know I'm going to have to get out there and do some kind of run. I'm thinking of keeping it short since yesterday was a long run. There's also the Philadelphia Rock n Rock half marathon coming in September. And if you sign up today you get $20 off! I'm really considering it, but I have to make up my mind asap!
