|I usually run in the park. But I chose a hilly out and back route today. Not that I was looking for hills. I just figured there is a better chance that I'd finish the mileage I set out to do if I know I have to make it back home. I'm not trying to walk all the way back.|
It's been a long while since I've run this route. The hills aren't as hard as I remember. I guess the two races I did in Central Park helped. I still was surprised about the negative splits though. The second half was harder than the first half. Just check the elevation chart. You'll see what I'm talking about. It's just that my first mile always feels slow and sluggish. And I'm sure that's because I'm not warmed up yet. But while running the first mile, I always feel like I can't possibly go any faster. Then at some point, the kinks magically work themselves out. Thank God for that.
So tomorrow, I have 4 miles planned. I will definitely be in the park this time. I'm sure my legs can use a little break.
Cool Down = .15mi
