Midweek Run - 6.2 miles

Today was my first run after my FAIL on Saturday. It went really well, in fact I had the best time I've had on any of my 6-mile midweek runs. Not as fast as the turkey trot, of course, but I can't complain.

I even had a couple setbacks that didn't work too much against me. Traffic was uncooperative, I had to stop a couple times before crossing streets. Also in Mile 5 I had to stop so I could wipe the sweat out of my eyes. With both of those, I still managed to get my best midweek time.

Mile 1: 8:14.64
Mile 2: 8:19.53
Mile 3: 8:48.39
Mile 4: 8:40.42
Mile 5: 9:03.60
Mile 6: 8:53.65
.20 mi: 1:46.43 (8:57/mi)

6.2 miles, 53:46.66, 8:40/mi, 778 calories burned

Tomorrow it's back to the gym. I'll also try to fit in a couple miles on the treadmill to see how the newly-calibrated Forerunner works out.
