Had a great group run this morning with my new Galloway group! The Program Director and PD Assistant have changed the groups again, so that my group ran intervals of 2.5 minutes/walk 1 minute, rather than 2:1 like last week.
Overall I had no trouble keeping up and felt good when our 6.3 mile run concluded. I did notice that on the flat ground I was usually at the front of the group, but when we came to the hills, I fell to the back. There was only one time I took an extra walk break. Truly I think I'm just a little skiddish about hills because overdoing hill work is probably what caused my mid-April injury. So I'm saying I think the speed issue may be more a head issue than a fitness issue. We ended up averaging 11:40 pace, but that included one water-potty stop, so I think that was a pretty good training run. It was 79 degrees and over 90% humidity.
I'll be out of town for the next 2 Saturday runs. I'm taking my clothes, shoes, and Garmin and plan to get those run ins myself. Hope all my SparkFriends are enjoying a healthy, active weekend!!
