Easy Run Tuesday

Today's plan calls for an Easy Run. 

DC Bike Path: 1/2 Marathon Training, Easy Run. Dist: (7.00)mi. Pace-avg: (15:39). Speed-avg: (3.8)mph. Speed-max: (5.0)mph. Burned: (721) Calories. Headlight. 

Plan: Run (5.0)mi. @ a (17:46) pace for a total time of (1:28:53)hrs.
Actual: Run/walk (5.0)mi., bracketed by a (1.0)mi. warm-up walk, and a (1.0)mi. cool-down walk.
Fuel: Pre-run: Honey Stinger Organic Energy Chews (Orange Blossom); Mid-run: (water); Post-run: Dinner! Chicken and pasta.

Terrific run tonight! I ran (4.0) continuous miles, then walked the rest. This is a recovery week with Easy Runs only on the schedule, though I intend to run in an 10K 8k this weekend. I just need to find the details again, then register.

Other News: My new Hi-Tec hiking boots have arrived! I am looking forward to breaking them in. They are a size (13), which is a full size larger than I wear, but my size (12) Hi-Tecs from last year were at least a half-size too small which I discovered during the Yosemite hike, and not before. I wore them around the house and around town, but that was not enough to point out the trouble spots ahead of time.
