I got it done.
It wasn’t pretty. I had various things that hurt on and off. I stopped sweating. Then I would stop to stretch, and the sweat would stream in my eyes, so I decided to keep going.
The hills only look bad because of the scale. I don’t understand why my pace is so incredibly inconsistent.
It was one of those runs that had both “Man, I feel so slow!” *looks down at watch and sees 8:xx pace* and “Woooo! I’m flying!” *sees 10:xx pace* moments. Usually it’s just one or the other.
I think back on how in the month of February, every single run was under 9:00/mi. Does the heat really slow you down that much or am I getting slower in my old age?
