Loping Course PR - 5.5 miles in 45:02

5.5 miles 45:02 (8:11/mile)

total: 5.5 miles

Mostly Cloudy
Wind: SW at 21 mph
Humidity: 63%
course: Springbrook Prairie

It is noteworthy, in this case, to regard this as a course PR. I dropped my time around 1:30 from just a couple weeks ago. I also beat my Freedom Four 4-mile Race time from July 4.

Bug-riddled, I relaxed, and enjoyed the run, except for bugs biting, swimming on my tongue, and doing laps around my eyes. That I didn't like. It also was so dark by 2/3 through that if it weren't for the white crushed rock path, who knows what pond I'd be floating in.

My legs were aching going into it, thanks to last night's butt-kicking. I expect a slow trot in around 9:00-9:15. I worked hard to stay focused after mile 2 through mile 3.5, where the hills are, but the bugs really did me in. It was humid and hot, but didn't seem as much of a bother as was the ingestion of black things with wings.

4 miles 32:57.86/8:14 --- 4-Jul
5.5 miles 46:31/8:27 --- 25-Aug

  1. Mile 1 - 8:26 (8:26)
  2. Mile 2 - 8:14 (16:40)
  3. Mile 3 - 8:20 (25:00)
  4. Mile 4- 7:45 (32:45)
  5. Mile 5 - 8:05 (40:50)
  6. Mile 5.5 - 4:12 (8:24 pace - 45:02 overall)

Well, if you landed in a pond you could have done some laps and began getting ready for a mini-triatholon. (However that's spelled)The bugs landing in your mouth may not taste good, but may be good for you. Hey the birds love them.
