Monday Morning Mile Week 6

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Was rudely awakened yesterday morning and decided the best remedy for it was to go out and run.

Dedication or Insanity you decide!

In any event, I walked the block and a half out to the road I run the mile on only to find that the city had set up a detour and blocked off a stretch of road. They were cutting down some of my shade trees emoticon. In all fairness there were several dead limbs and limbs fall with every storm. Nevertheless, I am sad to see them go!!!

I decided to walk around the block and run a parallel stretch of road a block over. Only one side of that road has any shade so I was not sure what to expect. I did decide to run the shaded side on the second half!

The run went well and I set a new personal best 10:53:27!!! I was more than a little amazed.

Last night, after a full afternoon, I decided to run another mile. This time the outcome was not as good, but it was still an acceptable 12:00:54!

I had scheduled to run with my trainer today but an event at church is conflicting...showing up drenched in sweat is not the preferred way to make a statement!!! As a result I am going to try the run solo!

That being said, I guess I'll lace up my running shoes and head out the door shortly! Wish me luck, perseverance, and a cool breeze!!!
