Fitness Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 38:43
Pace: 9:40 min/mi

Comments: In the sense I got myself motivated enough to get out the door and complete four miles, this run was a success. In ever other sense it was a disaster. I've had more enjoyable runs while suffering through a bourbon hangover.

It was humid as hell and just enough rain to be annoying but not enough to skip the workout. I knew I was strong enough to get this whole effort done but crap conditioning made it awful. Every mile was slower than the one before and how I kept the last one under ten minutes is a real mystery.

I'm going to try and get another run in tomorrow. Hopefully it won't be as terrrible.

Fitness Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 37:48
Pace: 9:26 min/mi

Comments: The rain held off this morning long enough to finally get a run in. The other nice thing was that the temperature wasn't brutal since the humidity was extremely high.

This run went very well. I was very consistent the first two miles, slowed by ten seconds on the third then finished with the fastest one of the bunch. I felt solid the whole way and never like a slog. Which is a nice change.

I might try and do another run tomorrow morning due to the skipped days this week because of weather.

Fitness Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 38:15
Pace: 9:33 min/mi

Comments: My father came into town last week and we took a trip to Austin. As a result I didn't get a run in the last three days. That made getting a run in today a priority and I'm happy to say I took care of business.

This wasn't a spectacular effort historically but substantially better than my runs over the last week or so. I didn't really feel tempted to cut the run short and I wasn't in as much of a slog as it went on.

My pace is getting back down and there wasn't such a massive slowdown over the course of the run. The second half was much slower than the first half but my final mile was better than the third.
