This morning the Pack rallied bright and early on the Greenline for a 6 MILER! The longest distance some have ever run – what a day!
Keep showin’ up gang – we’ll get there!
I completed my long run yesterday – since I’m going for a big time improvement (shooting for the 1:40s!), my long runs are a little bit longer than the Pack’s right now. I too was up before the sun but opted for my favorite downtown river run instead of the Greenline. I was supposed to do 9 miles at an 8:31 pace…..and managed this in the 84 degree temperatures instead:
Woof. Managed to stay in the 8:00s for the first 5 which is promising – the last 4 were a big challenge! It was “fun” to run down by the river again – although I don’t necessarily enjoy running the Auction Street bridge twice or having to go up the hill to Martyr’s Park or up the steps to the Bluff but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?! Until this heat leaves town, the most important thing is for me (and you!) to get the miles in. I’m not too concerned with my pace on the long runs yet – just getting back into the swing of being on my feet for more than an hour!
