I woke up to an email from Haley wanting to run/walk the 5 mile loop. I left to meet her and I thought I'd be late but I was early.
She was there a minute early too.
The plan was to walk 1/2, run 1, walk 1/2, run 1, walk 1/2, run 1, walk 1/2 for a total of 5 miles. We both used the Nike+ distances and I knew it was off but we followed them anyway. Her Nike+ said she went 5.7 miles even though it was 5.15. Mine said we ran 3.7 and we ended up with an extra half to run at the end. I wanted to use the posts to run but they are missing every now and then and conveniently missing at our first marker.
Haley had joked that once I was done with her I would run after because running with her wasn't a real workout. I laughed but then it sort of came true. Too bad I didn't have any water with me. It got hot. Haley and I talked for about a half hour so then my 2nd loop started around 10 and so by the time I was done it was pretty hot and sunny.
|Data from Runs Only (Was probably only 3.2 mi)|
|Data from run and walk (except it was 5.15 not 5.72)|
|2nd loop Run only portion - was 4.5 mi|
|not is off. i didn't time the calibration. missing .25 of run.|
It's funny how I used to run 10:34 with running the entire 5th mile.
After the run I really wanted water. I touched my face and it felt salty. Oops. That has never happened before.
