It was blissfully cool outside this evening! I’ve gotten used to running in hot and humid weather, but it was only around 70 degrees today!
I decided to try using my bluetooth earpiece to listen to music while running, instead of my usual wired headphones. This was helpful, because I didn’t have the wire from my headphones bouncing around in front of me. I also brought my water bottle again.
I knew that I wanted to run at least 4 miles, so I planned on taking it easy with the pace. Once I got to mile 4 I still had a lot of energy (probably due to the wonderful weather), so I decided to run for another mile. I reached mile 5 and still was feeling good, so I decided to go for a 10K (6.2 miles)! I’ve never run so far in my life! It felt great! My pace was even pretty decent (for me) … I averaged about 11:30 per mile.
So my new PR for a 10K is 1h:10m:56s. I guess my next distance goal should be a 15K (9.3 miles). I’m still trying to pick up the pace and would like to (eventually) be able to keep up a 9 minute mile pace. It would be awesome to be able to run a 10K in less than an hour! I guess I need to start doing more speed work…
