This morning after dropping Mason off at preschool (2nd day tears) I headed out for a run. I left my car parked at the church parking lot and figured I would do 3-4 miles around the area.
The city of Charlotte was named after one of Britain's queens, Queen Charlotte. It's nickname is "the Queen city" and there are like 500 different variations of Queen Road. That's a slight exaggeration, but still, my entire run was on a different version of Queen Road. I even ran by Queens University. At least it made it easy to remember how to get back to my car :)
I forgot my headphones at home but enjoyed the music-less run. I think the lack of music affects my speed negatively since I found myself having a more relaxed pace the entire time.
mile 1 - 8:22 minutes
mile 2 - 8:13 minutes
mile 3 - 8:08 minutes
mile 4 - 8:01 minutes
4 miles in 32:45 minutes, negative splits!
I'm planning on taking tomorrow off from running and attempting a "long run" on Thursday after I drop Mason off.
