Fast forward to Tuesday, June 11. After a four day hiatus, I hit the ground running once again, vowing to increase distance and pace. Mission accomplished. Ten minutes, twenty-four seconds to complete 1.37 miles, for a 7:36 minute/mile pace. Thanks to The Bronx in my earphones.
Thursday, June 13. Another run sponsored by The Bronx. 1.89 miles in 15:08, good for an 8:00 minute/mile pace. Things are starting to come together. I just wish this rain would cease since it has caused the ground to turn to marshland.
Friday, June 14, today. Two miles was the goal and once again, I was relegated to the track. And The Bronx. The outcome was 2.29 miles in 21:45 (9:29 minute/mile pace). I sacrificed my blistering pace for further distance but eventually, it'll all come together.
Lindsay and I are running a Run or Dye in Hartford July 20, it's 5K, so the way I'm looking at it is as long as I keep running and feeling less and less like Homer Simpson, I should have no problems at all.
Just wanted to let you know I'm trying to get in shape again. It's not easy to just turn on the running--after all, it is boring as hell. Especially on a track. Oh yeah one more thing. I need an arm-band for my iPhone because having in your pocket while running sucks.
