4.58 mile run

Ran my scheduled miles tonight. Well, a little over: 4.58 miles, as calculated in Streets 98. I pushed the pace a little, aiming for a 9:00 pace. But I did even better than that, according to the Cool Running Pace Calculator: total time was 40:14.38, which means I maintained a pace of 8:47.152! Go, me!

I also did the “Gentle Pickups” afterward, six of them. The next-to-last one was downhill and, I’ll tell ya, I felt like I was flying!

This is amazing, considering I nearly killed myself on Wednesday, trying to run in the heat and after giving myself severe gastro-intestinal distress from some very very hot sauce at lunch!
