|July 24th, 2012||Running|
Yes. I hit a new personal distance record (PDR)! It was a goal of mine back in May to do a 5 mile run on the treadmill. After staying up late on Sunday night watching 3 hours of Bachelorette, I was not in any shape to get up early to run on Monday morning. I went to the gym after work instead.
It took some time, but I finally accomplished it! I hopped off the treadmill a few times to try and get rid of my side stitch, but at least I did it.
- wore my Pro Compression running socks to bed Sunday night
- ate a lot of carbohydrates on Monday
- last snack was around 3pm. — next time I’ll eat my last snack before running around 1 or 2.
Mile 1: wasn’t too bad I decided that the One Direction Pandora station was my music choice for the day. I started around 9:50 and kept that pace for the majority of the miles. My goal was to do 5 mi, and I knew I would do it if I just slowed the pace down.
Mile 2-3: I don’t remember miles 2 and 3. I was in the zone. I do remember that during this time it started to rain outside– pretty to look at during my indoor run.
Mile 4: My side stitch really started to hurt. Had to take a few breaks during mile 4 to really massage out the cramp.
Mile 5: I picked up the pace for the 5th mi to about 8:30.
My walk home in the rain was super muggy and sweaty!
