I FINALLY knocked out some higher mileage today. Kara and I ran 4.01 miles in 47:27 today. Slow and steady. 🙂
Miles 1 and 4 hurt. Mile 1 ALWAYS hurts! ALWAYS! Miles 2 and 3 felt good.
Flat ground is my friend. Downhill is my best friend.
We only encountered 3 dogs on our run. They were mostly ankle biters. Which could still do some damage, but they weren’t huge like bears or anything.
I’m hoping that this 10k that I signed up for this Saturday is going to be kind to me and only give me flat ground and downhills. I mean I know I can stop and walk if I want to, but I really want to run the entire race. And I know I’m “supposed” to take off the day before a race, but let’s face it people-obviously I’m not in it to win or anything. Not with my times. 🙂
So I’m still streaking minus one day! 🙂
