Ran 9 miles today! Farthest I've ever run in my life! I meant to try 5minrun/1minwalk because the marathon training group near me does that interval (that's the lowest interval they have). I was nervous about it and about 4 miles in I was thinking those 5 minute intervals seemed like they were lasting forever! The longest I've done is 3 min run/1 min walk. By the end I was hurting, I really pushed the last 1.5 miles simply because I wanted it to be over quicker.
I took my gymboss interval timer off my shirt so I could put it on my cooldown interval and when I looked at it I realized I had been on 6 min/1min intervals. No wonder the 5 min segments seemed like they were lasting forever.... I started crying when I saw that. I think I was just so exhausted and then frustrated because I feel like 6:1 is too much from 4:1 and I'm going to be regretting it tomorrow....
Anyway I'm happy it went well. I'm happy I got 9 miles in today... I wish I had done the interval I meant to and maybe I wouldn't be hurting so bad, but happy nontheless.
Oh and for the friendly people, I was on mile 7 and some lady who started riding he bike when I started running and I guess she was ending her bike ride at that point when she passed by me again and she like stopped her bike and said "great job!!!!!" and she was like really enthusiastic. It was pretty freaking awesome. It's exactly what I needed at that point.
