|Total Average Pace:||6:56|
As you can probably tell by the table above this run was all over the place. When I started the run I really didn’t feel all that different or any better than usual. By the 3rd mile I noticed that my pace had picked up considerably. I kind of dreaded this doing this run since I had such a late start for it. It was 9 am by the time I started and I had plans of doing a 15 miler. By the end of the 3rd mile it was hotter and definitely more humid than expected but I didn’t want to force myself to run at a much slower contrived pace because of the conditions. I decided to go with the flow. That flow had me running pretty quickly. Somewhere along the way Mahta jumped in as well. The amazing thing to me is that the 6:17 actually felt like 7 minute pace, even in the adverse conditions! Then eventually the reality of the situation came to the forefront. By the end of my 3rd loop I was badly dehydrated and a little light headed from the heat. I had to go and hydrate(I don’t usually hydrate during my runs). By the time my 4th loop came around I was done and there would be no 5th loop today. Like Sean always says, I needed to save a little something for tomorrow.
