Did my 5-mile run today, as planned. In the gym, wore my Asics. Used two puffs of my inhaler. Music was Green Day’s “American Idiot”.
I wanted to test my speed, so after a mile warmup, I cranked the pace up to an indicated 9:05 and held at that for 2.25 miles. I did 2 miles last week and about 10 seconds faster, so I wanted to do at least another quarter-mile farther today. And I did. Yay, me. I rock! After that, I had to walk for about 2 minutes, then finished the remaining distance at between a 10:00-10:30 pace.
Still haven’t decided if I’m going to do my long run tomorrow or Sunday. Stay tuned.
