I had planned on waiting to let my legs recover from the half marathon but then I got a spurt of motivation and decided I would do it yesterday (Wednesday) while my daughter napped. It was 62 degrees and sunny with some fairly significant winds. The wind drove me nuts but I figured it probably kept me cooler and from sweating profusely than if it hadn't been there. I'm not going to lie, once I started running I wanted to be done. My knees and hamstring were throbbing after mile 1 and I was running fairly fast (for me) just because I wanted to get it over with, so I was tired from the get go. I regretted not waiting until Friday. But I didn't give up and completed my 3.7 mile run in honor of Run with Jess's birthday. Happy birthday!
I ran 3.7 miles in 35:50 with a pace of 9:40.
