Do you ever have a run that was both good & bad? I did today. It was really strange. It was great because the weather was perfect....felt like fall here with the sun shining & a cool breeze that didn't sap the will to live from me for a change! It was great because my overall pace was 10:20 & I KILLED 2 of those miles with 9:38 & 9:52 splits. Seriously, my feet were turning over like I was Fred Flinstone heading home for dinner ;-D! I felt fast & light!
Here are my splits:
But bad because I had to stop not once but TWICE (TMI moment coming on...feel free to stop reading here) for potty breaks! Really. On a lousy 6 mile run I had to make pitstops twice. I hate that! What if this happens during the marathon? Yesterday was 6 weeks to the Wineglass Marathon & I am having periodic anxiety attacks about my ability to not only finish it, but to be able to run and enjoy it without having to look for a place to stop multiple times. I have another 20 on deck this week...
Oh, and a HUGE shout-out to Michael @ Slowly Tri-ing http://slowlytri-ing.blogspot.com/2011/08/oops-i-did-it-again.html who PR'd another sprint tri!
Happy Running :)
