Finally.....Running in the Streets Again

The weather cooperated...wooohoo...we got to run outside again twice in one week, well ok the first time was just a brisk walk but still two sessions in one week that were outside on the streets...awesome. I'm so wet with sweat, the humidity is pegged I think but I don't care.

The run was slow but it felt good. Right towards the end I could feel a bit of pain in my left shin yet again. I am going to someone this afternoon that says they should be able to help the pain.

Today's Stats:

Distance: 3.10 miles
Time: 40.59 minutes (I should have turned the watch off sooner but forgot)
Pace: 13:13 minutes/mile
AVG HR: 139
MAX HR: 163

Definitely not one of my faster times. We did run most of the first mile, and only walked twice in the first two miles, mile 3 was more walking though.

Mile 1: 12:16 minutes
Mile 2: 12:18 minutes
Mile 3: 14:29 minutes
Last .10 1.55 minutes

Just getting out and getting it done is what counts, and you are also getting your body acclimated to the weather for the rest of the summer! That's great!

glad to see you back on the roads. :)

and i don't want to say that i don't have any humidity up here because as soon as i do a front will come in and the air will feel like a sponge. so i'm not going to brag about the awesome lack of humidity in eastern washington right now. :)

It's not always the time that matters...but the quality of the run! Nice job and I am glad to hear that you were able to get outdoors and run!
