The weather today made for another great day for a outdoor run. I had to finish my weekend at work. It was a lot quieter day compared to yesterday. The running paths along the lake was NOT quieter at all. It was jammed packed with people. I took another path today so I can have a change of scenery.
Unfortunately, my acid-relux decided to kick in today during the first mile of my run. I am not going to be give TMI, but I did not want to get a quick second taste of my lunch. Yuck! I was able to through the run even with the slight discomfort from my stomach. It really made me slow down a little bit and keep my pace at a decent level. In fact, it was very hard to keep it at a 9:30/mile pace. My legs wanted to go faster, but I had to mentally remind myself that this is a recovery/slow run. It was made it a very challenging run.
Mile 1 - 9:13
Mile 2 - 9:34
Mile 3 - 9:34
Mile 0.18 - 1:39 (9:22/mile)
Avg Pace - 9:27/mile
