Speaking of the State Fair, I found this meme yesterday and thought it was very appropriate for the Missouri State Fair!
I need to do a long run tomorrow, so I may wait for a short run next week before I hit the road with them. Ignore my crab socks.
I did a 3.75 mile run on Wednesday evening. I started off slow as my legs were very sore from softball. However, I didn't turn on my tracker correctly and didn't realize my mistake until 1.25 miles, so I have no clue how fast the first mile was. I realized I was going way too slow and sped it up but it wasn't the best pace:
Mile 1.25: no idea
2.25-3.25: 9:36 ( I ran the first half mile in over 10 minutes, so I trucked it the 2nd half)
3.25-3.75: 8:53 pace
I will be at the State Fair most of next week and not sure when or how I will get my running in. I have a half in a little over 3 weeks, so I really need the miles!!!
I want to do this after my next half to help me increase speed for some 5K's I am doing:
