So… I talked myself out of it…

And then ran anyway…

Distance: 6.5(ish)

Time: 1:00

Splits: 9:20 (ish)

I hadn’t planned on going that far today.  Tomorrow is my long day and I hope I didn’t put too much into it today… we’ll see.  The group actually runs for an hour on Saturday.  I guess we just went short last Saturday (40 minutes).  There was actually somebody there faster than me this time (not that difficult to do!) but he was nice enough to run with me for a while.  I tried to push the pace a bit and then just turned him loose at the halfway point and let him go.  I was puffing too much to talk and he wasn’t even breathing hard so I knew he could go faster.  I appreciated his effort to humor me and run with me though.

From now on, I think any time I go over 45 minutes I am going to bring water and a Hammer Gel (or something like it).  It makes such a noticeable difference in the last half of my runs to get that little spurt of calories and not be cramping up or hurting because I didn’t drink enough.

Today was good, though.  Nice run, nice people, pretty day.  I’ll take that!  Tomorrow is 10 miles!!!  Another psychological barrier for me.
