SF10 Miles Trained To Date: 14.25
Well, obviously my 4-mile easy run did not happen yesterday. The day was just all-too-filled with lock changing, glass repair, security measures, making telephone calls, etc. And last night I was just pooped. Plus, I felt that my legs needed a rest from the interval running on Wednesday. So I aimed to run this morning.
I woke up and really didn't want to do it. But I knew it would be helpful on many levels. So I put on my new running capri's (present to self) and set out. I didn't take any kind of musical distraction. For now, I am all about the safety! The first mile was filled with thought after thought of the robbery, unfortunately. I was trying to be a sleuth, not that it helps anything. I tried to get back into the game during mile 2 and speed up (contrary to what the Garmin says). I turned around after 2 miles to head home. Somehow the Garmin clocked off the 4 mile point way sooner than it should have. Hmm!
Mile 1: 12:17 (deep in thought)
Mile 2: 13:18 (impossible - I find fault with this)
Mile 3: 11:30 (that's more like it)
Mile 4: 11:19 (too fast, and it ended too soon)
Average: 12:06 per mile, 170 beats per minute
On the way back up to my house, I met two different neighbors. It's strange how certain circumstances make you want to get to know everyone possible - even people you never desired to know before. I chatted with both of them. Next thing you know, I'll be the head of the (nonexistent) Neighborhood Crime Watch.
