Friday Chilly Run!

Today's plan calls for an Easy Run.

DC Bike Path: 1/2 Marathon Training, Easy Run. Dist: (5.0)mi. Pace-avg: (15:09). Speed-avg: (4.0)mph. Speed-max: (5.0)mph. Burned: (523) Calories. Headlight.

Plan: Run (3.0)mi. @ a (17:34) pace for a total of (52:42)min.
Actual: Run/walk (3.0)mi. @ an avg. (14:02) pace for a total time of (42:06.29)min., bracketed by a (1.0)mi. warm-up walk, and a (1.0)mi. cool-down walk.
Fuel: Pre-run: mixed fruit salad, Honey Stinger Honey w/ Cocoa & Vitamins (Chocolate); Mid-run: (water); Post-run:homemade chili w/ beans, cornbread.

Good run tonight. The weather is chilly, and it's windy and damp out from the rains overnight. There was no fog in the park tonight, also none last night. I had a good pace starting out with the run leg of my run tonight:

Splits: Mile (1): (13:33); Mile (2): (13:39); Mile (3): (14:59).

And I sustained it for a good while, but then crapped out a bit once mile (3) started.
 I'll work back up to it. Looking forward to Sunday's Long run. I haven't managed one of those in a while so no doubt I will be using the Galloway Run/Walk/Run method.

Other News: An acquaintance corrected me about where she lives: In Victoria, on Vancouver Island, NOT Victoria Island, which is next to the North Pole (or thereabouts). I really have no idea how I got those confused. Maybe it's all those "v's": Victoria, Vancouver Island. Whatever.

Like the song says, Here Comes the Rain Again!
