Chris came home when I had about a mile left and took a picture of me.
|After my run|
I started out going on my regular 5 mile run but changed it halfway through to make it a 6 mile run. I actually really liked the route I went. It went down a really steep hill and was more gradual going uphill back home, and I got to run along the Skagit River, which is always nice. =) The fourth mile I was really dying. I don't really know why, it was flat and the wind was to my back, but I really felt tired. Mile 5 wasn't too bad, until I was almost home. So the last quarter mile I cranked up "California Girls" and lipsync-ed my way up the hill. =) When I did the Fowl Fun Run 10K I didn't know how far I'd gone or how much farther I had to go because I didn't know the route. I think that was much harder for me. Knowing where I was and how far home was made me feel like I could finish easily.
I wanted to run the 6 miles at a 10min/mile pace, but obviously that didn't happen.
