I just HAD to try out my new shoes today. It was 33 degrees and sunny when I got home, so I changed into my running gear and waiting patiently for Ward to come up to the house. Then I was off. I really didn’t mean to start off the run so fast, but ¼ mile into the run, I looked down at my Garmin and saw that my pace was 7:45 and I didn’t even feel like I was running hard. So, I went with it.
Here’s the break down:
Mile 1: 7:54 minutes/mile
Mile 2: 7:52 minutes/mile
Mile 3: 8:02 minutes/mile
Last ½ mile: 7:32 minutes/mile
I completed my normal 3.5 mile out & back run in 27:35. Those shoes shaved minutes off my time! I love them. I just wish Maine Running Company carried cooler colors. Oh well, next time I’ll go for super light and super cool!
Now I cannot wait until Saturday’s 5K! Here’s hoping this slight feverish feeling I have going on right now goes away.
