Okay, so you heard my heartbreaking tale of dropping out at mile 2. My hip flexor was killing me-- my vast medical knowledge tells me that happens because of lack of core strength-- or it could have been that I was doing a good 8:00 pace to get to my running group, then met them halfway and moved to 7- somethings (or what felt like it) with no warmup. Ether way, I didn't log anything, and I ended up doing 45 minutes of core on the infield and a couple hours of icing. Todays run was amazing though. It felt easy, I went fast, really fast. I did 8:05's for 4 and a half miles, and like I said, it felt like nothing. Here's the route, it was a good one:
Now I have to figure out how to get to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts this week/ weekend. Plus, I need to find a ride up to Cleary Lake Park in Prior Lake for the 5k this weekend.
