Distance: 6 Miles
Took it easy today and still ran just over 9 minute miles. My last mile was an 8:30, just to push it a bit at the end. Tons of people out on the trail today and the city of Columbia has finally finished an extension to my favorite trail that basically makes it start right in the heart of the city, which is good and bad. It’s good in that there is plenty of parking and it’s a pretty area. It’s bad in that there are a lot of restaurants right in that area. Great when you are hungry after a run but hard on the pocket book and slightly nauseating after a long run…! Today wasn’t bad as far as the smell of food went, and I was able to resist the call of the deep fryer. I’m sure it will be different after my long run on Saturday…!
