I planned on running only 3.0 miles today, but I went up and visited dad and then went out to eat and I had fried clams and French fries. Definitely not what I consider too healthy, but I don’t see dad all that much and I don’t eat this way very often.
I did blur out my Dad’s political message on his t-shirt. This is a running/fitness related blog – I try to keep politics out of here and yes my dad has some very deep held political beliefs.
When I got home, after driving an hour both ways in addition to the big lunch, I felt a little antsy and decided to run 5.0 down to Notta Road. I just ran pretty steady and wasn’t trying to do anything other than get my miles in. As I was coming back up Steven’s Hill, I was feeling pretty good, so I decided to add on another mile. I ended up running 6.0 miles, instead of my planned 3.0 and I felt pretty good during the run.
My splits were:
- 1.0 – 8:31
- Turnaround 2.5 – 21:44 (13:12)
- 4.0 – 35:06 (13:22)
- 5.0 – 44:11 (9:05)
- Finish – 53:28 (9:16)
This was supposed to be a recovery run and I kept forcing myself to run slower than I wanted to, in order to keep it that way.
I had plenty of energy and felt good that my hamstrings and hip were minor annoyances, instead of a source of discomfort that they have been.
The Adidas Adizero Sonic 3’s now have over 50 miles on them, so I will be putting together my 50 mile report on them sometime over the next couple of days.
