It was one of those days.
The kids were ornery. Mom was ornery. Dad got home, and so I just had to run.
Josh bid me farewell with some excellent advice. He told me to turn off the voice-overs that tell me how fast and how far I am running. My app was still running in the background, recording how fast and far I was going, but I just didn't hear any of it. I turned up my music and didn't even have a pre-determined route. I ran wherever I felt like running and tried to enjoy an amazingly beautiful night!
After I had run what I thought was at least 4 miles, I looked at my phone and saw that it had been exactly 3.1 miles. Ha! I was almost home, but decided to run for about another mile. As I kept going, I just decided not to stop. I ended up running 6.3 miles, and it felt GREAT! I wasn't out of breath or tired at all. (My legs were feeling a little sore) but overall, it was awesome!
I ran 6.37 miles in 1:08:56 with an average pace of 10:49/min/mile. Whoah- slow! I know. But I don't care one bit because it made me feel incredible. Running therapy...it works!
