Thursday Run

This will probably be the last run for July, but I am not going to thro in the towel yet. Next week, we are driving to Dallas for the Mary Kay Seminar and that will be from Monday – Sunday. This leave working out in the hotel, but the hustle and bustle of Seminar leaves few quiet moments and those will be filled with the kids.

Today's run wasn't as bad even though the weather was pretty dang hot. I ran 3 miles instead of 3.4 and chose a different route today. This route had a downhill at mile 0.6 but also a big uphill at mile 2.4, flat (as Knoxville can get) everywhere else. The split times are as follows:

Split Time Mileage Pace
1 11:54 1.5 7:56
2 13:12 1.5 8:48
Total 25:06 3.0 8:22

So I am guessing that my 5k time right now would be just under a 8:00 min pace given a reasonable course . I will be doing the Scholar's Run 5k in August, so we will see how this running comes along.

I'm a husband, father and runner in the Knoxville area. I love the way that running makes me feel and how it has changed my thinking. I am always looking for the new PR whether in the 5k or the marathon
