|Me and my new lover, the foam roller. Instead of lazying around after my run, I roll out my legs for about a minute. I am that diligent.|
I would just like to say that I beasted it. It was hard for me mentally to complete the run especially at mile 4, but I pushed through it. I mean by the time I was on the third tempo mile, there was no way in hell that I was going to give up and do the run some other day. I didn't want my first two tempo miles to have been for nothing. After a mile warm up at 10:08, I was able to pick it up for first tempo mile and ran it at 8:04. Miles 2, 3, and 4 were 8:06, 8:04, and 7:48 respectively.
|This is my beast pose. It's a little awkward, but I can't take good photos of myself.|
One thing though was that I purposely picked a flatter route. Is that cheating?
|A lot flatter than my usual runs.|
