I woke up this morning and made it out for my run at about 8:00am. It wasn't as early as I wanted it to be but I was happy to see it was still only 75 degrees outside so the Atlanta heat had not started to creep up just yet. I wasn't sure how far I wanted to run, I just knew I wanted to get in some miles to end a lack luster week of training.
I ended up running my 5 mile route and added a loop of additional hills to finish up with about 6.3 miles. I tried keeping the pace easy and that wasn't too hard because I was suffering a little bit toward the last half of the run. I did feel a little sore in my back after this run, but I think that was due to the total amount of time I've spent on the couch the past few day and not training!
In the end, it turned out to be a good run. I did need to push through the hills and the straights and downhills were a nice addition to what seemed to be a hard uphill effort.
Distance: 6.3 mile
Pace: 7:50/per mile
AVG HR: 146
