So how as the run, a nice and steady run that I didn’t push overly hard hard and just felt good.
My splits were:
- Notta Road (about 2.5) – 22:28
- Goodhue Road (about 3.3) – 30:24 (7:56)
- Pond Road –38:00 (7:36)
- Tiffany Road – 1:08:03 (30:02)
- Mile 8.0 – 1:11:54 (3:51)
- End – 1:22:19 (10:24) Felt slow and was slow
I kept forgetting to press the watch button on the different splits that I usually do on this course. I was pre-occupied with some GREAT news that I got this week and was trying to answer my “homework” in my head, so I wasn’t really focused on this run and was doing too much “wool gathering” to get a really great run in.
Oh yeah, this was supposed to only be a 5.0 miler and I was feeling that I had a lot of nervous energy and stress to burn off, but had too much on my mind to run fast, so that is why I ran longer . I will be writing more about this later on (when I can), but it is very good news. It has been a tough couple of weeks waiting to find out the final answer.
