I'm not a quitter (at least not yet)

I woke up this morning and didn't want to run 10 miles. Shocking I know. So I hung out with Mason while Ryan knocked out his 7 miler.

By the time he was finished running and showered I had decided I should try to run, you know, just a little.

So I headed to the gym and ran on the treadmill for 5 miles. I'm annoyed that it took me almost an hour to finish that mileage, but like I've stated recently I'm just not digging the treadmill.

Once I was done with the 5 miles I went to get some water and use the restroom. Then I headed outside to run on the outdoor gravel track.

I managed to run 2.5 miles before it started raining. I didn't want to quit before the 10 miles were over so I kept at it. I'm happy that I finished the 2nd 5 miles way faster than the treadmill run.

I averaged a pace of 10:05 min/mile for my total run today, which is slightly slower than normal, but that's ok. What counts is that I didn't quit, even when it started raining.

Looking forward to "only" running 7 miles as my long run next week!
