That didn’t happen, as you can see. Again, there’s that difference with distance and pace (Garmin: 11.27 miles @ 10:08/mi; Strava: 11.5 miles @ 9:55/mi).
Second, the route was not all flat as I had hoped. The residential areas were all about uphill and downhill.
Third, my pace was very very slow. When we got to the CORPS park, we found some trails and we ran through that. On a normal good running day, this would’ve been a perfect place to run. But it was just too damn hot and hilly.
Fourth, I busted out my long distance Mizuno Sayonar 3 shoes and ran in them. I haven’t worn those since December’s marathon…. They are definitely more cushioned which mean a little heavier and bulkier than my normal Mizuno hitogami 2 shoes.
Overall, I didn’t finish as strong as I would’ve liked and I didn’t get that high that we both enjoyed last weekend.
But… Bad run is better than no run!
And it wasn’t just a normal 5 or 6 mile run, it was 11.27 miles (11.5 on Strava).
Right after the run, we got the smoothie. Not a local owned smoothie place but this hit the spot.
Now, we’re off to the North Shore to see some turtles and maybe even go for some more yumminess. Ha!
