So my roommate is also a runner, and decided it would be fun to run to Battery Park and go to a bakery there. If would have been fun if it wasn’t 90 degrees out and if we had actually found the bakery. I really wanted a cupcake.
It wasn’t all bad. We ran 5.5 miles, and that doesn’t include us wandering around the sidewalk sales, so all-in-all, we probably walked/ran 6 miles or so.
It wasn’t my best run by any stretch of the imagination. My pace was slower than normal, my legs were sore, and it was way too hot out. But, I was still under 12min miles, and I only need to be under 16min miles for the half marathon, so even if I run like I did today in the million degree heat, I will still be okay.
Monday, it’s back to sticking with the training program. No more slacking off!
