SO I needed a run to clear my head.
The wind must have conspired with the pollen today. They ganged up on me and made today's run quite an unusual one. Arkansas has lots of trees, and I read somewhere some years back that it's one of the top states for having quite a lot of pollen. Kid you not, I thought my lips were kinda powdery when I licked them at one point of my run. And my throat, it was kinda dry. I ran out with the wind blowing against me and thought, well, it will be better on my way back. Haha. What a joke. Haha. Didn't happen. Still got slapped in the face by the wind.
Nonetheless, it was a very good run. It cleared my head from the paperwork and I know I will focus better on calculating percentages and updating progress reports later.
Mile 1: 10:30.23
Mile 2. 10:53.30
Mile 2. 11:01.19
3 miles in 32:27 mins (Average 10:48/mile)
Not too shabby. The good thing was I sustain a 10+ minute/mile for the first two just like last week. The not-so-hot thing was not keeping all three miles under 11:00mins. But it will be OK. I just have another short term goal to work on the next time I run. :) It can be done! Right?
Have a wonderful week ahead. I am still putting together a review of the products I used last Saturday, so stay tune.
