It has been beautiful this week, so I decided to go to the DHY at lunch and run. It wasn't too long, wasn't too fast, but was pretty much perfect. I ran on the downhills and flats and walked up (or halfway up) a couple of the little hills on the path.
Stats: 32:10, 3.5 mi, 9:12 pace (5:43 best), 163 HR (196 max)
Mile 1: 8:41 (walked about the first 2 minutes)
Mile 2: 8:02 (no walking this mile)
Mile 3: 8:48 (walked up hills)
Mile 3.1: 1:06
Mile 3.5: 5:30 (this was all walking—up the last hill and around the track)
5-minute standing ham after an afternoon walk. I definitely needed that!
