Ahhhhh . . . September: Morning 5 Miler: 9-1
Words fail to describe how happy I am to say goodbye to August and Summer with it. I looked forward to this Summer as Winter lagged on, but I had no idea what I was in for at the time. Now, I am just happy to be moving on. August hasn't been all that bad, but I just want to get as much distance between myself and the misery of July as possible. My training program had a five mile scheduled for my next run, and I was determined to get up early and give September a little kick in the pants. Like Gordon from the Street, I love running early just before sunrise. My confidences is slowly returning to me, and I had no doubt's about my ability to complete this run. I ran from my place to Hillsborough St. nearly down to the Capitol and back. The run was relaxing and just what I needed to begin September.
I did 5 miles in 51:49.29 for a 10:22 pace.
Mile 1 -- 10:59
Mile 2 -- 10:36
Mile 3 -- 10:42
Mile 4 -- 9:42
Mile 5 -- 9:47
