Yesterday I set out with the goal of sub 8's for 5 miles. There was a DARK cloud to the East....and I did not have my hat. Hmmmmm..could I possibly run faster than the rain?? As I ran I decided to aim for negative splits. I wore the spandex shorts from my Marathon last June, apparently I have lost inches because the shorts were WAY TOO BIG!! Funny how you can lose inches without losing weight. Anyhow the shorts were a PAIN the entire time.
I am still trying to determine the perfect race day outfit. Will try to get a belated Test Lab Tuesday tonight to show you my choices..
So how did I do??
1- 8:13 (fussing with my shorts)
7:47 overall pace!!!
Zero soreness, YIPPERS!
I did not beat the rain, Mother Nature poured on me the last mile. The kind of rain that makes puddles instantly. Thankfully the last mile was my fastest, but I still sported the drowned rat look the rest of the day. Running on the lunch hour is not always pretty..but I got it DONE!!!
Wishing you all a LOVELY TUESDAY!!!
