Memphis Countdown – 5 days

On Saturday, Annette, Kim and myself will be running the St. Jude Memphis Half Marathon, that’s less than 5 days away. I’m trying not to think about it too much or I’ll get nervous and not be able to think, eat or sleep the entire week. So, I will just try and concentrate on getting a few 3 or 4 mile runs in until the big day on Saturday.

Today I met Kim at Lakewood for a 3-4 mile run. It was drizzling earlier in the day and luckily this afternoon it had stopped, but still no sun. It was a brisk 46 degrees and very windy. We made a loop around Lake #3 then headed out for our loop around Lake #2 and the Old Mill. On our way out we had the wind to our backs, but when we made that turn around, BRRRRR, it was right in our faces. We ended up with 3.65 miles at an average pace of 10:34. I felt pretty good, kinda of slow starting out, breathing hard as usual, but no stomach issues again. YIPPEE!!

  • Mile 1 10:47
  • Mile 2 10:21
  • Mile 3 10:34
  • Mile .65 6:55

Wow that second mile looks pretty good!
