I met Laura and Katrina tonight to run. We did 3 miles! It seemed pretty hard at first...I asked Katrina what our mileage was at one point and she said 1.5 and we were all like really? It seemed like we had ran farther than that already. I think the fact that it was hot and humid didn't help our run! But by the time we reached 2.5 miles I was in a good rhythm and felt pretty good! Here's the stats from the run: 3 miles in 30 minutes and 30 seconds, average pace of 10:09!!!
My shins were pretty sore by the time I got home though...I ran yesterday morning and then ran tonight. I usually have a rest day in between runs. I am going to have to stick to that I think...otherwise I am scared the shin splints will return!
This Saturday I am running another 5K race! It is for the March of Dimes and is at The Wharf in Orange Beach! It is called the Stargazer 5K! I am excited about it! I am running it with my friend Paige. She is hoping to run the whole race...she's never ran a full 5K before. I think I might run at a slower pace so I can stay with her during the race. Besides I am sooo happy about my 31:32 time at the Fiesta Race and don't have any goals to beat that time. So I think I am just going to have fun with this race!
