Timed just the run portion of my training. 13'39"/mile. :) Didn't finish today. Forgot my water. Cut final run by 2 min. :(
My run yesterday...
I posted a little blurb about it yesterday, but didn't really go into much detail. I was so excited about how well my runs had been going that I let me kick myself around for my "failed" run yesterday.
I was thinking about it today. I didn't have a failed run. Did it go as I expected? No. Was it my best? No. And more importantly, was it my worst? Well, if you consider that I never used to run, that answer is a resounding NO!
I learned yesterday, too. So there was a win. I need to remember to keep hydrated and eat well the day before my run. I can't really eat anything right before I run, so I need to make sure I have been well fed and watered the day before.
It was a rough run. I thought about turning back before I actually did. The last few minutes were rough. I swear I could have been walking faster than I was running, but in total I ran for 22 minutes with a three minute break. That's more running than I've ever done at one go.
So, there. Nobody can take that away from me. Especially me
