Three miles!

Today I ran three miles to prepare for next weekend's race. I haven't run three miles without stopping in years. The first 1 1/2 miles felt great! Then I got a cramp in my side. Ugh. But I kept pressing on and the pain eventually subsided. There was one hill that was pretty hard and a steady incline that lasted about 4/10 of a mile. I was so happy to be done with that part of the run!!!

So now I know I can do the three miles and I am feeling much better about the race. It should be lots of fun. I just hope I don't put undue pressure on myself to run fast, but I probably will.

Today's stats:

distance: 3 miles (not including warm-up or cool-down)
time: 36:20
pace: 12:07 minute/mile
