My hubby is working from home today so I though I would get in a run before I had to be at the gym for swimming. I am so excited that it's lighter in the morning so I can start running earlier...well at least I thought I was excited! Figured I would get the run in so I didn't have to rush to the gym with the kids. I planned to go 4-5 miles since it was nice and I didn't have to hurry. Thank goodness I didn't have to hurry because I felt slow. Might be because of my speed work yesterday and that I didn't eat before the run and it was a lot earlier than more normal running time. Whatever it was, it made a difference. The good stuff is that I ran 4.60 miles and it was nice out.

Total miles for the day: 1.88
Did a quick warm-up with the jogging stroller. I haven't used this for a long time. I think Cole really enjoyed it...even if it was for less than a mile. My husband had perfect timing and was on his way home as we finished up our warm-up and he walked Cole home so I could do the real work on the track.
Started off great until I had to go to the bathroom...(sorry for TMI) but as a runner I know you get that. Only got 2 fast laps in and 2 recovery laps in. These are hard, but I know they will help me as a runner...They have too!
Lap 1: 7:02
Lap 2: 10:26
Lap 3: 8:16
I went off so fast for my first lap that I couldn't keep up the pace the rest of lap 1. Knowing that I had more to do I started slowing down. I need to get used to these and learn how to breathe. Do you realize how BIG a track is? I keep forgetting until I have to run fast around them.
