4 Mile Long Run

I've been a slacker since my last run on Thursday (except for the push ups/crunches, which I am definitely feeling today). I was supposed to walk for 30 minutes yesterday, which I was going to sub with biking, but neither happen. I failed to wake up this morning, so the run had to wait until tonight after an exhausting day at the beach. I didn't think it was going to happen. Since I had to wait to digest my dinner and there was no way to run before it got dark, I got Jason to run the 4 miles with me.

The run was rough. I walked for 30 seconds after mile 1 as scheduled. I started getting a side stitch around mile 2 and took another 60 second walking break after that, but had to stop again because the stitch was too much. I paused the watch and walked it out.  I started running again convinced I would not be able to make it to 4 miles, and told myself to at least run 3 miles then call it a night. When I got to mile 3, I walked for a minute, maybe 2, then started running again. I slowed my pace a bit, but I finished the 4 miles running in just under an hour. I am sore and my feet hurt, but I ran 4 miles!

Splits:

  • mile 1 - 14:51
  • mile 2 - 14:32
  • mile 3 - 14:49
  • mile 4 - 15:39

Indeed, all that matters is that I did it! It is even better because I struggled but pushed through to finish. Thanks guys!

Congratulations on running 4 miles! I can't believe you completed that in a span of 30 minutes - ridiculous. HUGE accomplishment!

Oh no, you misread. I took me about an hour.
