Today's run was an interesting one for me as it was 12 miles, but not at a consistent pace. My instructions were to run each mile at an increasingly faster pace. My first mile I ran at 9:10, then the second mile was at 9:00, then 8:55, and so on until the 10th mile I ran at an 8:17 pace. The final two miles of my run were to be the fastest two miles, so I ran them at 7:50 and 7:37 respectively.
After running, it was time to relax and enjoy some time at the lake, so I decided to go tubing with the kids. I can't remember when the last time I went tubing was, but I'm guessing at least two to three years, so I figured today was the day. If not now, then when?
Today's run - 12 miles, 1:42:47 (8:33/mile)
Next run - Tuesday, 6 miles
