Total Miles Trained For Elijah: 362.1
AARGH. The entire tone of today's run can be summed up with my feelings as my alarm went off at 5 AM: I hope it's raining outside. I was not in a running kind of mood. But I got out there anyway.
I ran south to a different neighborhood, then north through downtown, east to the small airport/industrial district, and finally back through my own neighborhood. It was more of a walk, really, as I did a LOT of walking. I did not consult my training schedule; I should have. I was meant to do 7 miles, not 6. Oh well! Too late now. Here are my sad splits:
Mile 1 - 12:40
Mile 2 - 13:03
Mile 3 - 13:30
Mile 4 - 12:37
Mile 5 - 13:28
Mile 6 - 13:33
Average - 13:09 (way too slow)
Today is one of those days where I am just proud to have done it. Period. I am hoping things perk up before Saturday's 18-miler because at this point I am NOT excited.
