Since I didn’t get my 5-miler in yesterday, I tackled it today. It was much warmer than it has been… in the high 40s. I felt great throughout the whole run except I was accompanied with a raging headache, which I still have 8 hours later. Everytime I felt like I was looking labored, I did a little bit of self-talk and said to myself “stop making this look hard.” I don’t want spectators at the race seeing me in pain at mile 3. That would embarrass me. I did about 4.85 miles in 53 minutes, a 10:55 pace, which is a tad bit faster than I have been running.
My neighborhood has a 5k marked, so I timed my miles:
Mile 1- 10:51
Mile 2- 11:14
Mile 3- 11:21
Mile 0.1- 1:08
I love how Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point has a bunch of mismatched plates, so I thought I’d start my own collection. Yes, I know I’m a huge copycat.
I came home and made a delicious dinner of a Boca Mushroom Mozzarella veggie burger on a whole grain English muffin with a slice of 2% American cheese. I made some vegetarian baked beans as a side dish. Note- I really should start taking pictures of my meals.
I’m hoping my legs feel well-rested for a long run tomorrow!
