2 Miles at a Time

I took this long run two miles at a time. I thought my dog Zoe needed to stop that often for a drink on the back porch. Did you feel that humidity out there? By mile two I knew that today was not going to be a 16 mile day like I had hoped.

I ran one mile away from home, made a u-turn and ran back for a drink as many times as I could. And that was five. Ten miles today at a total average 10:12 pace with the last four miles averaging 10:40. Since I slowed down so much in the later miles, I thought the smartest thing to do was to stop and call it a day. Day! = )
