10 miles done

After dropping Mason off at school it was time for me to do my weekly long run. This time I ran around our neighborhood and surrounding areas. I had to cross one major intersection (which I hate) but otherwise love the route.

It was my first time taking a GU during this training season and I had the triple berry flavor around miles 4-5.

Mile 1 8:20
Mile 2 8:05
Mile 3 7:51
Mile 4 7:51
Mile 5 7:57
Mile 6 7:57
Mile 7 7:52
Mile 8 7:48
Mile 9 7:56
Mile 10 7:51
10.05 miles in 1:19:55 minutes

I passed an older gentleman around mile 8 who told me to "keep it up." I took his advice and kept repeating it over and over during the last 2 miles. I really wanted to run sub 8 minute miles and I succeeded. So glad I pushed myself.

Now it's time for some recovery in my awesome procompression socks and some lunch before its time to pick Mason back up.
