Total run

Distance: 5.25 miles                Total time: 1:05:41                                     Average pace: 12:31

Before I ran, I still had a lot of pain in my shins. I suspect, I may actually have hurt myself! I started my run using the run/walk interval set at 3 minutes running and one minute walking. Three minutes was a bit much! Although it did produce some good starting times, it was just too much time. I reset the pace to 2 minutes running and one minute walking at mile three.

As a result, mile four and five were much easier to run. I also began to run on the front of my feet to ease the pain in my shins. This worked and I also picked up some speed. I was actually surprised to see that miles one and two were as fast as they were. Looking at the numbers, walking a minute less for miles four and five made the run easier and faster. I find it strange that I can run for a minute more and go slower! Maybe that Jeff Galloway really does know what he is talking about!

Tomorrow is a busy day, two inspections and Saturday is the Heart Walk.

Next week is already booked up with inspections and Doctor visits, then, Saturdays run of 17 miles! I can hardly wait!!
