Good news! I found my camera It’s been missing for over a month now – I wanted to get back into posting pictures, but I couldn’t find my camera. Hopefully I will be posting pictures again soon - but until then, I just have a run recap.
My dad runs 5 miles almost every day. It’s always amazed me that he’s in so much better shape than I’ve been, and I’ve wished before that I could run the 5 miles with him. Today was that day – I ran 5 miles with my dad. And then 2 more on my own!
Not only did we run 5 miles, but we did much of it on hills – not big hills, but it was a challenge to me since I’ve gotten used to running on fairly flat trails. We also slowed down over the first 3 miles (which included the biggest hills), but picked up the speed for each remaining mile. The average pace was 10:39. Our splits:
- Mile 1: 10:38
- Mile 2: 10:46
- Mile 3: 11:05
- Mile 4: 10:58
- Mile 5: 10:36
- Mile 6: 10:23
- Mile 7: 10:04
- Total: 1:14:31
A big day for firsts – first 5 mile run with my dad and first 7 mile run ever! I celebrated with a heath bar chip pancake…mmmmm.
