Running – 08.07.10

Distance: 15.03 mi
Duration: 2:57:42 (boo)
Pace: 12:17 min/mi

Everything about this run was terrible. I left too late. My body felt like it had forgotten how to move properly from the moment I walked out the door to the time I finished. Well, I did have a short period of some sort of rhythm at about 3 miles in, but then I promptly got lost, got off the trail, and just got thrown off my game. Eventually found the trail after a nice uphill on a sandy path (UGH) and by then, I was toast. I did allow myself to walk today and not beat myself up for it. I even stopped and took a few photos with my camera on my iPhone. The last five miles were some of the hardest I’ve ever made myself finish.

12:17 is definitely slower than I want to run on these runs, but today just wasn’t my day. I’ll have next weekend to make up for it (16 miles). God, help me.

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at Read more here.
