Gotta get my coffee...
Time:22:27   Distance:1.91 mi   Pace:11:46
I had a video to return (again) and decided to stop making excuses. I ran up there and back with the stroller (and my 24lb baby). It was hard. I think part of the problem was that I ran a bit too fast for something I have never done. I know it says I paced at 11:46 ... but this includes a really long stop at a stoplight. I thought about pausing the time during that wait, but I needed the wait. I figured I should just include the pause into my time, since I probably would have paused even if the light wasnt red :)
I was surprised how hard this run was on my legs. Is that weird? The whole time my legs felt like I was running in sand. In addition, my heart was racing and I was sweating more than I ever do on any other runs. I honestly couldnt have gone any longer or farther than I did this morning. Luckily, my run ended right in front of a Starbucks (convenient, huh?).
