Yet another PR!

Tim and I took the kids to the park after he came home from work. It was really nice out, and a lot of people were taking advantage of it. Kara and Matty played on the swings, then Kara went down the slide a few times. After that, we headed to the adjacent grassy lawn to throw a football around for a few minutes. We had a great time. But the fun ended when I kicked the football and it landed right next to Matty. It bounced into his shoe and he started bawling. Real tears. :-(

I decided to run home from the park. I was wearing a sweatshirt but within about a half mile I had to take it off and tie it around my waist. The cool breeze sure felt good, though! I ran down the main thoroughfare until I got to a subdivision and ran through there instead. By the time I reached my destination, I had only run 2.10 miles. I kept running because I wanted to get three miles in. I yet again broke my PR for three miles and also ran my fastest mile yet! Of course it was the first mile, LOL! But I'll take it.

Today's stats:
Distance: three miles
Time: 34:10 (previous best was 34:23 set on March 20)
Pace: 11:23 minute/mile

Splits:
Mile 1: 10:55 (two seconds faster than previous fastest mile, also set on March 20)
Mile 2: 11:32
Mile 3: 11:41

Michelle,
I love your blog because you have young kids AND you run exactly my pace. You don't live near Kansas City do you? ;) And to clarify you didn't start that record breaking first mile away from the park the second your son started bawling, right? ;)

Cheers!
Sarah
