I set out on my run-knowing I needed miles. As I was getting into my groove, my jaw was super sore still. I told myself I needed to run at least half of the half. So I set out for at least 6.5 miles. I got into a good rhythm and before you know it, it was time to turn around. I wore a 3/4 sleeve jacket as it was overcast when I set out but by the time I turned around I did not need it anymore. I was going to take it off once I had to stop at a stop light to cross the street, yet none of them stopped so I stayed in a steady rhythm the entire time.
My total distance was 6.7 miles in 1 hr and 4 mins. My goal for the half marathon is 2 hours.
My splits for this run were:
- mile 1 9:27
- mile 2 10:01
- mile 3 9:34
- mile 4 9:26
- mile 5 9:29
- mile 6 9:36
- .7 6:36
I started to look up previous times: (THIS MEANS I SET A PR)
-My last actual 10k race was in 2007 for a time of 1:16 (my first year of running)
-I did a 10k as part of a tri relay team and my times were
- 2010 10k with tri relay was 1:25
- 2009 10k with tri relay was 1:15
