I debated whether to run my 4 mile training run outdoors today but I ended up at the gym for multiple reasons. First off it is still too dark at 5:30-6:00 to safely run outside on my own, although it is getting lighter out…yay! Secondly, although the temperatures were in the 30’s, it was way too windy. Thirdly, if I waited to run until later in the day I would have to find someone to watch my 2 year old. Lastly, I really enjoy starting my day with a run and getting it done, no excuses.
I completed 4 miles in 37:44, not bad. I stayed between 6.0 mph (10 min/mile) and 6.7 (8:57 min/mile) and for the last 0.25 miles I sprinted at 8.0 mph (7:30 min/mile).
This was a good run and I feel great! I did have a 1/2 piece of banana bread prior to the run and today it did not sit well, I had bad heartburn midway through my workout. I pushed through and as you can see I completed the workout anyway but I will be searching for different types of pre-workout fuel. I am looking forward to my yoga day tomorrow!!
