Pepper and I went for a morning run. Couldn't sleep last night (damn Broad Street train crossing) so I woke up early, did the dishes and went for a run. I have been fortunate to have the luxury to run just about any time in the day (no job) so I usually plan a late morning or mid afternoon run. That way, breakfast or lunch has settled. There is a lot to do today, so I decided to take care of the run early. I ran before breakfast and coffee and was surprised how solid I felt. I didn't feel as if I were out of gas as I thought I might. I did get hungry, however. But it was a short run, so no worries.
We ran the Glens trail and then CF streets. The first 2.1 miles were at a 12.2 min/mi pace - there was a steep stairway climbing out of the park back to city streets that I had to walk up. And the trail was "technical" so that leads to slower times. The second 2.16 miles were at a 10.0 min/mi pace - a negative split. How about that! The second part was a little fartlikish as well. Overall pace was 11.1 min/mi.
So that was the last run of the month, but not of the week. I plan to run in Cinci tomorrow. It was a low mileage month as well. I ran twice as far in February. And no race this month. Hmm. I need to change that for next month. I have a few in mind but haven't confirmed them yet.
That's all for now. Happy Friday!
