So I just finished my five mile easy long sunday run. And it was the worst run of my life!
About 77 degrees, 80% humidity, rain showers (light), and only 1 hour after my salad. Uh--bad. As far as my pace, that was fine 10:53, right in line for long run pace. However, the level of discomfort I felt was unbearable. I need to get a heart rate strap for my garmin, because I am positive I had to be at about 90% for the duration of my run. Right now, 15 minutes after stopping and cooling down, my hr is still 120. I am drenched (part sweat and part rain, mostly sweat i think). I am having terrible stomach ughiness and overall I think i might be better off dead.
Ok..I'm being dramatic, I know. But really, this run was no fun.
Glad it is over, and yes, I'm glad I did it and did not miss a training day.
Proud of myself for that.... :-)
