Virtual Run Report

Today is the day when I finished my 2nd virtual run this year. Hosted by Running Diva Mom, I ran 1 mile in 10:32 minutes.

It started out one lazy 5:30 a.m. when the alarm went off.  I rolled out of bed and headed to the gym because I had promised a friend that I would do fartleks with her. 

I did my fartleks. It was 2 miles of staying on task and at the last mile, I got impatient and went out of the structure I had initially planned.
I changed the pace setting for every 0.5 mile.
12:00/mile for 0.5 mile, 10:43/mile, 11:46/mile, 10:00/mile, 10:30/mile, and then I hovered between 10:30 and 7:30ish/mile for the last 0.5 mile. 

2.08 miles for 24:52 minutes followed by 1 mile for 10:32 minutes.
Another three miles down.
