It was a very hot and humid morning, but I survived! My plan called for five miles with a gradual increase in speed for the first four miles and the last mile at a really fast speed. I almost succeeded with that if it weren’t for my second mile being fast and my third mile being kind of slow due to climbing the overpass over the turnpike twice; I’m still not good with hills. The first mile was at about 9:30, which is a great start in the heat. I ended with mile five being 8:32 . I completed the entire 5.13 miles in 47:19 giving me an average pace of 9:13. I felt great afterward and I think I am ready for my speed workout tomorrow.
