I did the splits!!!

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Did I grab your attention with the pithy title of this blog? Good! I actually have split times for my cyber running buddy Mike (GSDMIKE) after my awesomely Sparktastic run today. Oh how I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Garmin!!!

6.42 miles
1:21 total time 12:40 av pace
4.7 mph av speed
570 calories burned never to be seen again

Now for my SPLITS:
L1: 11:53
L2: 12:03
L3: 12:26
L4: 12:49
L5: 13:14
L6: 13:03

It is a gloriously sunny day yet very chilly at 27 degrees and I took this golden opportunity to hit the streets. As you can see in my photo I am getting attired very nicely thanks to Christmas $$$ and a great coupon!! I love this Nike Livestrong jacket and feel very cool wearing it. I wanted something that was very bright for safety purposes and this will do just that.

I felt very very strong throughout my run and this is the second longest distance that I have run since I started running last June. I took it slower than I would have nornally of course as I wanted this to be my long slow run this week as I am building mileage. The one thing that I have noticed is that hills are quite a bit easier now that I am in great shape thanks to my running ST. I don't get winded nearly as much as I did before. I find my mind just wandering now as I am not thinking about how bad I feel or how I need to stop and take a breather. I love that feeling!!

Come Spring with races starting up I will be good to go and I truly look forward to seeing exactly what I can accomplish with my running in 2010!!!
