This morning started off dreary, foggy and rainy. I had planned to possibly try to get a 2 mile run in on the dreadmill. I haven't run in a week due to being sick, and I wasn't sure how I'd feel. By 2:00pm the sun was starting to shine. By 3:30 it was gorgeous outside. I decided to go down to the river walk.
There weren't many runners out when I was there. But it was a beautiful day to run. I was overdressed. I didn't need the long sleeve shirt. I was struggling at first. I hadn't run in a week, and I always have problems with my breathing when running. Add in the fact that I'm still congested and that didn't help matters. I had told myself that I would like to run 3 miles since it was so nice. As I was nearing the half way point, I was close to an intersection. I decided to run to the intersection and turn around.
When I got back to my starting point, I was just shy of 4 Miles. Instead of stopping, I decided to continue on the path until I reached 4 Miles. I feel pretty good about the run. It wasn't by any means fast, but overall it was steady. I wanted to run the last mile faster than the rest. I did ok.
Mile 1 ~ 10:11, Mile 2 ~ 9:48, Mile 3 ~ 9:59, Mile 4 ~ 9:25
