I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the Garmin summary of my run this morning – 100% humidity? No way! Doesn’t that mean it should be raining? LOL. I didn’t think it felt that bad and contrary to the Garmin summary there was a little breeze.
I had an internal struggle this morning before my run; I was feeling very unmotivated. The devil in me kept saying I could skip it but the good girl said ‘just get in 2 miles and call it a day’. Thankfully the good girl won…and I even did 3 miles as originally planned!
I wanted to try to keep my average pace as even as possible so I kept an eye on my watch for the first mile to be sure I stayed around 12 min/mi. Mission accomplished. After mile one, I stopped for several walk breaks and feared I was going to wreck my average so each time I started running again I ‘hurried up’ for as long as I could and then settled back into my normal pace until the next walk break. Looks like that plan worked well and I even finished mile 3 faster than mile 2…small victory for me!!
