The weather here in South Georgia was absolutely BEAUTIFUL today!!! Annndddd, to just happen to be a day that I got off work at lunch time!!! So, I decided to wait until lunch time to get my 4 miles in...... last miles of the week!!!! Tomorrow is a scheduled REST day! :D
And, HOLY SMOKES!!!! 1 WEEK and 1 DAY until my FIRST EVER FULL MARATHON!!!!! OH my, what have I signed up for? What was I thinking?!?! LOL!!!!
BREAKDOWN OF RUN: 4.02 MILES at 9:06 pace
MILE 1- 8:49 (I think I might have had too much pep in my step due to the amazing weather)
MILE 2- 9:13
MILE 3- 9:06
MILE 4- 9:12
Along my route, is a street names Berkley..... it literally is like a valley... with a long steady hill going down and then with a long steady hill up.......... this street kicks my booty all the time! Especially on long run day because I usually hit this street around mile 7-8!
One part of Berkley which I was running up today.......
And the other part which I was running down today......... The above and below pictures were taken at the middle which is like a valley.... just took in each direction..... doesn't look too bad, but honestly the long steady gradual incline gets me!!!
Below, is a street that I was trying to cross.... doesn't look like a lot of traffic, but believe me this was a tough chore to do .... that is without getting ran over!!!! This is why I like early morning runs!!!! How do people run that live in BIG cities?!?! Seriously, in the early morning there is hardly any traffic to dodge!
So, it always cracks me up when I see the below statement about joggers/runners.........
But, I have to admit............ when you run the streets, you do come along some bizarre stuff.... like today, I came along this below... literally someone must have been stressed enough to pull there hair out!!!! I am not sure if this was a wig or weave..... I did not get close enough to inspect.... LOL :D
Gotta run.... have mommy duties to do.... UNTIL LATER......
