I'd be lying if I said my knee didn't hurt at all, but it sure does feel better than it has in a long time after a long run. I think I can get to the start line from here.
I ate lunch, and then started my run less than 30 minutes later. Big mistake. My stomach was not right for the whole run, and still isn't. To make it worse, I started too fast. I was struggling a little at 6 miles, so I knew this run had disaster written all over it. 4 miles short of the goal is pretty much disaster.
But hey, the weather was FANTASTIC!
- 9:10 (Walked some to refuel)
- 8:30 (Water bottle refill)
- 9:06 (Walked to refuel)
- 8:20 (Water bottle refill)
- 8:04 (out of excuses now, just running out of gas)
Hopefully next time I can start a little slower and hit 7:40-ish on the last miles.
