I remember thinking I did 5 miles last weekend so I could do 6 today and 7 next week then the 10k. But last year I was supposed to do 7 miles then 8 the 2 weeks prior (I did 7 and 7). So on my way to the track I decided to do 7 instead of 6. When I got home I realized I was supposed to do 9 so I was actually worse off. But that 9 was for a training plan for a half but now I'm running a half 3 weeks later (if I do it).
I didn't do too bad overall. I started slower than my normal start. I know this is because of the race yesterday. In my head I was factoring this in and came up with my goals for all the miles while I was running the warm-up.
Fastest Lap: 2:06.7 (usually fastest = 1:45) (Goal was below 2:15)
Slowest Lap: 2:37.3 (Goal was below 2:30)
There were only a few people at the track. They left by the time I was done. There were 3 people practicing soccer on the field for the last 40 minutes of my run. I had to keep my eye out in case they missed the goal and a ball came flying at me. The closest one got was about a foot away. Usually they kept their eye out when I was near the net and they waited to kick. This was my 3rd 7 mile run on the track. Both other ones were last year. This one felt more boring than the last 2.
I used to just want to run to get more data to compare. I miss those times.
Update: I forgot to mention how during mile 5 my arch hurt like how it always does when I end up with a blister. Well I got one. :(
