Happy Halloween, folks!
6.12mi, 56:43, 168bpm
This was a nice, medium run for me. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but decided about a mile in that this would be more of a “feeler” run. I covered up my watch, and just ran. I wanted to just feel everything out and see what my body and mind wanted to run. Right of the bat, though, I felt a little bit of fatigue on my left quad. At any rate, I tried to avoid thinking about it, which I did for the most part.
Overall, I felt pretty good. Even the final (2% inc) mile felt relatively good. The weather was beautiful. I simply love the fall-weather runs. It was also nice to get away from looking at my watch. I found myself looking at my watch a lot during my runs.
This run closes out the month of October for me; the month where I kickstarted my running. I did have about a week of vacation (Disneyworld) where I wasn’t able to run. Here’s the summary:
58.91mi, 566.6min, 9:35min/mi
Going forward, I’m going to have to get this number back to 100mi+ months.
