This morning I ran 6 miles at the NCR Trail. It was pretty good outside of one thing. Wet! It must have rained a lot last night, as there were a ton of small puddles along the trail. Also, the humidity was something fierce. I cam home to some wicked chaffing in the inner thigh region. Yes, I did put some anti-chaffing stuff on before the run. Oh well, still a good run. Now for the recap:
Mile 1 - 11:01 - Not much to mention, the typical begining mile for me. Slow start, then settle in.
Mile 2 - 10:57 - Quick potty break (not timed), then a nice pace. Enjoying the scenery and music.
Mile 3 - 11:26 - Humidity was getting to me. The last 1/4 to the turn around was slow.
Mile 4 - 11:00 - I stopped for some energy gel and several drinks of water(not timed), then off again. The stop must have given me a boost.
Mile 5 - 11:49 - Humidity was killing me. I stopped for a 1 minute walk.
Mile 6 - 11:12 - I mostly coasted in. Inner thighs were rubbing raw and just ready to get out of the sticky clothes.
It was a better run than I was expecting after yesterday. We attended a pool party New Jersey and got home late. Plus I have a ton at the party.
After the run, we took the kids to see Shrek 4. it was a good movie. Not as good as the first but on par with 2 and 3.
