I planned to run 8 miles, an out and back to Mercer County Park. As I was approaching a point where I know I should be around the 1 mile mark, the garmin had me at .53 miles. I guess maybe the weather effected it. When it did finally click off Mile 1, it was at 12:44. It worked fine the rest of the run.
For as bad a run as I had on Easter Sunday, this was just the opposite. The legs felt good, maybe the extra day of rest helped. It was nice to run without the wind. It seemed like forever that the wind has been blowing. There wasn't much going on at the park, the only people out, where the high school crew, practicing on the lake.
I pushed it the last mile , to keep with my plans to try and finish my runs with my fastest mile. The Garmin had me at 1:10:25, for 8.15miles, but you can add a 1/2 mile onto that. When I downloaded my run, I could see where it started, and where I actually did start.
The next few days has the sun coming out, and temps topping off around the mid 70's on Saturday! Sounds like maybe Spring has finally been sprung.
- 12.44 ( more like 1.5miles)
