Today was a run day, so instead of doing my usual trek up on down the street, I drove a few minutes to Halyburton Park. It’s a great local park with walking trails and natural areas. The main loop is 1.3 miles. I ran the loop twice for a total of 2.6 miles. My total time was 43 minutes and 36 seconds. Time for the first lap was 22 min and 17 seconds, which makes the time for the second lap 21 minutes and 19 seconds. I was happy that my second lap was shorter than my first, although they we very close. I’m a pretty good pacer, even though my pace is slow, I get going and just keep on at that pace for as long as I need. Soon, I’m going to have to throw in some speed work, since I need to be about twice as fast as I am if I ever want to finish a triathlon.
Tomorrow is cycling, so I will probably pull the trainer into the house and ride for an hour in the evening. We will see how that goes, hopefully the TV will be a nice distraction. I’ll let you know.
