Decided my route plans for this week weren’t aggressive enough. Maybe they were after all, but I ran further today anyway. My initial plan was to work my up to a 13.5 mi. run by the end of the week. Instead, I completed a 14.1 mi. run today. We’ll see how much I can progress.
First 3.5 miles were waaaay to fast, but pretty epic nonetheless. I averaged a 7:02 pace for that distance from my place to central park on fall hill avenue, and knew that for the distance I was going I had to slow down. I’m glad I did. I had 3 tremendously ridiculous hills throughout my run, beginning, middle, and end. Fall Hill was the first, followed by Rt 1 South, then Sam Perry Blvd by the hospital. The last was the worst. I felt so dead. I’m just glad I didn’t do it earlier in the day; I couldn’t have made it.
I’m on a drug called Patrick Connelly.
