I prefer to run in the morning. I actually hate night runs. Mainly, because I am starving from 3pm until I go to bed yet can't run with food in my stomach. So the 2 don't work well.
I missed my morning 6 mile run so I said I'd do it "later." Later came and I had a F this attitude. I put on my shoes and running clothes to get some guilt going. It always works for me. I think it's impossible to take off clean running clothes. That would haunt me all night. So I did the motions. Garmin on, pony tail secure. Now the hard part is done.
It was going to be getting dark so I had to run in my teeny tiny hood. Please see garmin to demonstrate cul de sac hell. In some weird way it was my punishment for skipping my scheduled morning run.
The first mile was sub 7. So, in my mind that means game on. I wanted to keep them all under 7. I did. woohoo! I hadn't planned on it but sometimes speed happens and you gotta go with it:
mile 1: 6:57
mile 2: 6:35
mile 3: 6:33
mile 4: 6:26
mile 5: 6:27
mile 6: 6:21
Overall pace: 6:33!!!
