This was the longest run I'd done since the Marco half, and I was feeling a little nervous. I'm definitely in denial about summer's approach; I picked up Elizabeth and we began the run just before 7am. It was already sunny and warm. Luckily, the route I chose is fairly shady until about 9am, but it's time to start planning our long runs well before sunrise.
Anyway, we saw Adria at the very start of the run and that seemed to get us off on the right foot. We kept our pace nice and consistent - I wanted to keep it slow and easy after Friday's run - and we ended up running very even splits! My calves were tight in the beginning, but I didn't let it worry me too much.
I had water with me in my Flip Belt but I didn't end up needing any. I felt totally unstoppable during the entire run. I just felt right. I love when that happens!
|I'm glad I got to try out the water bottles today even though I didn't use them. They were really comfortable, didn't bounce, and didn't leak!
|Our overall pace was 10:56 and the run took 1:27; I was pretty happy with that because I'd estimated it would be 90 minutes.
All in all, this was a great long run and a solid "race"!
