Attempt at a “long run”

Decided tonight to try and do a bit more than usual…

Last week I managed to run 3.5 miles but it was a bit of a struggle and I had to walk for a minute halfway so tonight I decided to try and do 4 miles.  So, to slow me down,  I set the old Forerunner to alert me when I’m pacing faster than 11 minute miles… it worked and I ended up doing 5 miles  as I felt so good. It felt like I could have done double that when I’d stopped but I didn’t want to push it too much!

Distance: 5 miles
Time: 50 mins 6 secs

Garmin stats and splits are below:
