SAT : RUN : 4:30- 5R:1W - 17 MILES - AVE PACE = 16:03
I am having a hard time feeling good about my long. Look at my pace-16:03. I know I'm slow but.... At first I thought it must be an error with my watch. Then I thought of not posting it on the blog. I actually felt good. I did have to make a few pit stops in the woods. Was it that I changed my ratio from 4:1 to 5:1 ? I had enough water. The temperature was good. The Metroparks were a great place to run. I imagine after a great run on Thurs., you can't expect it everyday. It was a huge speed bump to my confidence of breaking 6 hours. I have 6 weeks to go until the PIG. I was going to do another long run (5 hours) then that was it. I am rethinking my schedule.
This a.m. my MIL and I drove in from Cleveland. We loaded as much as we could in her SUV. The rest will come in later this week. She closes on her house on Friday. We went to McDonalds on our way back into town pick up food and snuck into her new home and ate our first meal there. There were alot of tears during the trip but not unexpected from someone who just moved out of her home of 27 years that she shared with the love of her life.
