Overall I had a great run. I was working hard but I also didn't feel like I was struggling. I ran a little slower than I do on the treadmill but it seemed SO much easier since I was GOING somewhere. I was also running pretty blindly because I couldn't see my phone and the running app really well. I was shocked when I stopped for a short walk break and had already gone 1.61 miles. I felt like I had only gone about a mile. I went a little further and then decided to head back to my apt. I stopped right at 3.15 miles. I wasn't exhausted but still felt that I had worked hard.
I used the Nike running app (this was the first time for that too) and although I'd really like to post a picture of my route I'm having trouble getting a screen shot. I liked how it showed the levels of intensity throughout my route. I could see when I was pushing myself and when I was taking a short walk break.
My favorite part was the accomplishments that were recorded at the end. They were:
- Farthest Run 3.15 Mi
- Longest Run 43:27
- Fastest 1K 7:45 (WOAH!)
- Fastest Mile 12:37 (WOAH AGAIN!)
- Fastest 5K 41:37
