5 miles....DONE!

Yes, I did it and finished my 5 mile run this morning. I was unfortunately delayed to complete it and had to swap rest days between today and yesterday. I had decided to mow the lawn on Monday morning since it had been weeks since it was done and my dry days were limited this week. I also decided to try some new core exercises as well. I should have stopped myself because I woke up yesterday with ultra sore back and abdominal muscles, which resulted enacting a ultra lazy day for me. Plus the weather did not help at all, which came with cold and rainy conditions. It's a good day to rest..period.

Well, when I woke up this morning, I felt much better and the weather was much better too. The conditions were perfect until I struggled the last 1 1/2 miles that I had left. But I got it done and I was happy to do so. I have more running on tap tomorrow. Depending on how I feel, I will do either speed workout or just 4 miles along the lakefront. Let's see what the weather also has in mind for me too.

Mile 1 9:22
Mile 2 9:21
Mile 3 9:22
Mile 4 9:27
Mile 5 9:44

Avg Pace - 9:27/mi

Nice job on the run. Sorry to hear the last 1.5 mi was a bit of a challenge, but you got through it!
