This afternoon I ran 5 miles kind of. I ran 2.75 miles walked .25 miles and ran 2.00 miles. So though the walking part is a little bit of a let down for me it is still exciting to have covered 5.00 miles at one time. I felt good and confident in the distance between 0 and 1 mile with an average time of 11:05 fast for me. Between 1-2 I started to slow down a bit as I got closer to the football stadium (it's homecoming here) the people and music coming from the stadium caused me to kick it up a notch (no one wants to look like the slow kid in front of all the spectators). Between 2-3 I hit a wall I was on a new track maybe it was the small hills, or the speed but at 2.75 I hit a brick wall. I had to walk the .25 miles then pushed myself to run the last 2 miles of this adventure. Let me tell you it felt like the longest 2 miles of my life.
today I ran the longest in time and distance I have ever in my life and I am proud of that! More to come later.
