Midweek Run - 6.2 miles

Hello everyone, life's getting back to normal after the jury duty. Not being picked to serve on the jury was a good thing, I'm back to eating normal now. Thank goodness, I don't think me or my body could handle two weeks of no gym, no running, and bad food.

6.2 miles today. I tried to watch my pace more closely and do the negative split thing, but I sort of lost it towards the end. Not 100%, but my pace certainly wasn't where I wanted it in the end. I'm getting closer though. My goal was 9 minute miles the first half, and 8:30 the second. Coming off the freeway during Mile 3, though, gravity took hold and I pushed a little too hard a little too early.

Mile 1: 8:56.22
Mile 2: 8:53.32
Mile 3: 8:36.20
Mile 4: 8:34.73
Mile 5: 9:12.47
Mile 6: 9:22.17
.2 Miles: 1:53.13 (9:24/mi)

6.2 miles, 55:28.24, 8:56/mi average, 780 calories burned.
