Today’s Agenda: 12-mile run
Time – 2:13:58
Pace – 11:09/mile
Writing today is taking a lot of energy. Eight hours of volunteering yesterday and a 12-mile run this morning has drained my energy. Of course, I have to suck it up because I have 12 hours of the best contemporary christian music.
Today is Heavens Fest. I am going to enjoy the rest so much (although I’m sure I’ll be standing and sweating. I plan on being exhausted by midnight).
Melissa and I got today started at 4:30 a.m. and out the door by 5. It was dark and a cool 63 degrees. My legs moved effortlessly at the beginning. I enjoyed a cool breeze every now and then. Before I knew it I had already reached the trail.
I cruised down that another couple miles. My mother met up with Melissa and me. She ran a few miles back with us. Today she was running 16 miles!
On the way back we faced the hills we had just enjoyed. There was 3 big ones. I made it, but with tired legs. This run really tested me and is a good measure of my progress.
Word of Advice: Run with a friend. I train with my girlfriend most of the time. She keeps me responsible to keep up with the training. Also join a running group. You will meet some great people and they can provide a push.
