Another Friday, another Lunch Break Run! This time co-worker B joined us. Looks like we’re turning into a running group. We need a team name!
Spring weather was in full force today, sunny and mild 60 °F. And I was wearing my winter running gear. Major fail! But thank goodness I bought some really nice spring/summer running gear yesterday. Just need to wash it first. (Note: I always wash new clothes before wearing them for the first time, to get rid of potential chemicals.)
Today we went back to the long, flat trail by the river. It used to be covered in snow or mud the past few months, but today it was totally fine. As usual, the guys and I separated after about 1.5 miles. They ran on while I turned around. I was really struggling on my way back. Maybe I started a bit to fast, wanting to keep up with the guys, or it was the ‘heat’ I’m not used to yet. Whatever it was, it passed, and I finished 3.5 miles.
- Distance: 3.5 miles (5,6 km)
- Time: 38:25 minutes
- Average pace: 10:58 min/mile
- Feeling: Hot
Oh my WHAT?!? That’s by far the my fastest run ever! I’m in total shock.
Guess it’s time to look for some local 5k races, right?
