Nice run after work.

I got out after work Wednesday, for the 1st time since the 1/2 on Sunday. It's been a rainy mess around here for the last week, and it was nice to get a dry run in.
I was surprised that I wasn't as sore as I usually am after a hard race. I did a nice out and back 6 mile run.
I didn't see any runners out, when I ran, but sure seemed like everyone was mowing their lawns.
A week from this Saturday, I have my 1st 5k race on the schedule, and hopefully I can hit the track once before the race.
I ran a nice pace, probably a little quicker than I should have, but I felt good.

6 miles 49:19 (8:12 avg.)
  1. 8:17
  2. 8:12
  3. 8:10
  4. 8:15
  5. 8:17
  6. 8:03

Nice run, and you sure are up early and blogging! Thanks for your comment, and have a great 5k race. Mine will be the first, thought I'm such a newbie that a comment like that is pretty unnecessary. If all goes well I am hoping to go as far under 22:00 as my legs and lungs will allow. What is your goal, if you have a time in mind?

I've already committed to a 5K next weekend, but it doesn't start until 11a in Sea Isle. Cape May Footrace is at 8a, so hmmmm....

I know - I mowed the yard yesterday. Your pace looks GREAT. Its the stamina you have right now.

Just looking at your last post, I think I like the HM medal more than the Full medal.

I'm curious, are you tempted at all to sign up for the NJM for 2010, considering the $65 price tag good till 5/17?

Hey, I'm going to be in NJ June 13th...would you and the NJ crew be interested in meeting up for a long run Sat morning?? It'd be my first blogger meet up!
