Running again today wasn't Plan A, but it was an acceptable Plan B. As such, it was supposed to go down was like this: ~3 easy miles(~12 min/mi pace). That's not quite what happened, though. What can I say? I'm really excited to be running again.
Wheeeeeeee! I'm running again.
Life is good. I really missed this.
Mile 1 - 9:21 min.
Oh crud. That's too fast. What am I doing? I'm going to hurt myself again if I'm not careful. Must.Slow.Down.
Ooooh lookie! There's a couple running together up ahead. I think I could catch up to them.
Hi there! Great morning for a run, isn't it?
Wheeeeeeee! This is fun. I can't wait 'til the 5K on Sunday.
Mile 2 - 10:27 min
That's better, but it's still too fast. Time to slow down for real.
Okay, this is more like it, I think, but somehow not as fun...
Mile 3 - 13:48 min
Are you kidding me? Now I'm going too slow.
I give up on tryng for an easy pace. I'm almost home. I'm just gonna' finish strong.
(fist pump in air)
Final .25: 2:14 min (9:02 pace)
Summary: 3.25 miles, "average" pace 11:02, real pace all over the map
