Fast 3-miler

Something about taking a break from running seems to suit me, in that I run faster afterwards. It’s not something I want to do long term but I find it very interesting!

As I mentioned in my last post, I haven’t been doing much lately, other than a 5k here, a yoga class there, but not working out every day. I’ve been feeling under the weather (allergies) which explains some of it, but it’s still just not like me.

But today I decided I had to get out for a good run for sure! I was ready.

We lucked out with the weather! Right when Farrah and I were set to meet, there was supposed to be a big downpour. But it rained sooner than expected and cleared out just in time for us. It also stayed dry during our whole run, thank goodness!

When we first got started, it hurt. My legs were stiff, not used to running and I was out of breath. But I slowed up a bit, my body warmed up and eventually I was on cruise control. We reached a point where we could turn and finish two miles or keep going for three and I said “Let’s go!”

We were both kind of shocked when we saw the time on our watches…

  • Time: 28:35
  • Distance: 3 miles
  • Avg. pace: 9:32/mile

It was pretty much my fastest 3-miler that wasn’t a race!

The funny thing is, we were just out “jogging” and talking the whole time. Imagine if we’d been pushing ourselves even more!

Ahh, let’s save that for another day. I’m going to enjoy this one now. 😉
