FINALLY got that long run in....7.09 Miles Baby!!!

Well the weather FINALLY cooperated and I got to do my 7 mile run that I have been wanting to do the past 3 weeks! I met Jennifer at her house this morning and her friend Angela from Pensacola came to run with us too. The whole run I felt like we were going a little fast but I was fine with that until we hit about mile 5. Then I really started struggling. I really didn't think I was going to make the next 2 miles. I started thinking that I hated this running thing and that there was NO WAY I could run that half marathon in November! 13.1 miles??? I was struggling at 7!!! But Jennifer kept encouraging me and telling me I could do it so I kept running! I really don't think I would have kept going if it hadn't been for her! That's why it is sooo great running with a buddy...if I had been on my own I would have surely quit! Finally Jennifer said we hit mile 7 and I was sooo happy! But then I got mad because I found out when I stopped running that my Nike+ stopped working!!! My longest run yet and it didn't record it...ugh! Luckily, Jennifer had her fancy GPS program going! We ran 7.09 miles in 1 hour, 18 minutes, and 24 seconds at an average pace of 11:03!!!! Holy Moley no wonder I was struggling! That is a killer pace for a long run (at least for me)! So seeing that gave me a little bit more confidence about that half marathon...I will definitely be running at least a 12 min. per mile pace for that if not slower!
