Today was day 3 of week 5. It was supposed to be the longest run so far-20 minutes.
I woke up like a "B" and just plain exhausted so I slammed around the house and swore under my breathe while I cleaned. I finally passed the mommy torch to daddy and went back to bed at about 8am.
When I woke up they had gone out to breakfast so I decided to get dressed and get the run done for the day. It is F' ing HOT today. I probably would have been better doing it at 6:30 when I first woke up.
I didn't measure the distance in advance but I did go a different route that included hills. Why I don't know. I just ran for 10 minutes and turned around and started back. I only made in for 15:40 and had to walk for 2 minutes. I did want to run back to my starting point and that ended up being 21:18.
All in all I am pretty happy with the results given the heat and the fact that the longest I had run previous to this was 8 minutes.
I also calculated my pace to be 11:57-below 12 minutes. Not bad.
