I had such an awesome weekend! Seriously, awesome.
I ran a 5k with 2 of my fellow bloggers, Robin from Running Circles Around Turtles, and Morgan from Caution: Redhead Running, and last but not least Harold from Aimless Runner.
The 5k was awesome, my IT band was bothering me and poor Robin's foot was not exactly 100% awesome so we went pretty slow but it felt great! I even had enough energy to run back to the start instead of taking the smelly sweaty shuttles! ewwwww
Mile Splits for the 5k:
Mile 1: 13:18
Mile 2: 13:17
Mile 3: 13:43
Today I was supposed to run 3 miles, I ran 3.25 because a ran .25 less than I should have yesterday. And.... it was awesome! I really contribute that to Morgan for showing me some great IT band stretches yesterday. The knee felt great. Shins kinda painful still (I think I forgot about those while my knee was hurting). But I'm ecstatic! And I ran negative splits!
Mile 1: 10:00
Mile 2: 9:58
Mile 3: 9:18
Last .25 miles: 2:05 (8:11 pace)
And some great photos from Morgan's camera! There are a few w/Robin too but those are on her camera so as soon as I get them I'll post! :D
