My running this week got off to a slow start. I skipped on Monday and Tuesday, to my chagrin. I'd be awake, realize it was the perfect time to get out there, and then just go back to sleep. Ugh! But all of that changed today. I woke at 4:57 AM all by myself (sans alarm). I peeked outside and saw the beauty that is dawn. I just loooooove dawn. So I hoofed it out there!
I did another neighborhood 5K in the COOL. (I can't imagine why people would want to run at 10 AM or 2 PM, but I see them doing it around here every day. Crazy!) When I did it on Saturday, I ran a half mile then walked at least a quarter mile. Well today I walked a quarter mile and RAN 3/4 of a mile! Yep -- more running than walking. It felt great!
Mile 1 was 13:04. Whoa baby! That reminded me of the good ole days. Mile 2 was 13:31, which was still great. During mile 3 I got a recurring side stitch -- ick -- and clocked 14:17, which was still not too shabby. All in all I knocked off exactly three minutes from Saturday's run. Wow! If this trend keeps up, I'll soon be ready for the Olympics. Ha!
