So I was so thankful that the SUN continued through Sunday and I was able to wear SHORTS on my run. Yipppeee! Felt so good to be moving...outside. It almost seemed as if wasn't going to happen due to a number of factors! Long story...once I finally made it I was able to chat and warm up with Megan a fellow 100K team member..and run into three other team members (BONUS). I was happy to see everyone out and about trying to get in that last long run. Mentally I was a bit stressed over the idea of running at "race pace" but I feel pretty good with the outcome.
Mile 1 8:58
Mile 2 8:42
Mile 3 8:02
Mile 4 8:15
Mile 5 8:54
Mile 6 8:00
Not sure how to get a stronger start??? I ran a full warm up mile before this and still seemed slow to start. Mile 5 was a mental battle and had to push through those pre set limits I had set. On Sunday I will have to run 9 at this pace or FASTER, which will be a P.R. if I can do it. Really looking forward to spending a day with the ladies!
How do you warm up? What does your first "race pace" mile look like??
