Ran on the trail this humid morning. At 98% humidity I was temped to log it as a swim. Hope everyone is staying hydrated and running well.
A short easy run on the trail with the dog this morning.
36 minute run today. Kept my best average pace yet. Almost broke 13 minute mile!
Started c25k on 5/30/11
Finally ran a 5 miler this morning! I slowed the pace considerably, drank before running, and humidity was only 88%. I even saw a heron during my cool down walk. It's been a fantastic morning!
DigitalFirefly - Way to go! Nice job on the pace!
At minute 31 today a car came flying around the corner and almost hit me. I was able to quickly dodge out of the way, but I hurt my foot in the process. I had a pain in the arch of my foot. I had to stop running and ended up limping 1/3 of a mile home. My foot still hurts. I'm icing it now.
My pace was good, I was feeling great all run. The last 4 minutes of my run was mostly flat and down hill, so I would have been somewhere in the high 12 minute mile range.
I'm thankful I didn't get hit and wasn't more seriously injured. Luckily I was close to home too.
Chup - great job on the 5 miler!
After some ice and rest my foot feels fine tonight. Crisis averted.
Long run today, 3.1 miles. Humid and 85 degrees. I wasn't feeling it, but pushed through.
I've taken a few days off for vacation and illness. Hopefully I'll be back in the saddle tomorrow.
DigitalFirefly - I'm glad to read that your crossing paths with a car didn't result in serious injury. As a senior in high school I was riding my bike early in the morning around a highway curve marked as a no passing zone. Wouldn't you know it, some jerk decided to pass coming towards me in the light fog. I went into the ditch. No one bothered to see if I was okay. Luckily neither the bike nor I sustained any serious injury. Sure did make me nervous for a while.
