Today I went for a "long run". Now, this was short in comparison to my long runs in the past. But I felt pretty good running this far, and hope to continue increasing my long runs each week. I want to run a 1/2 marathon in October. I've got plenty of time to build up to it. Today I ran 5.75 miles in 50:27. 8:47 pace. Felt pretty good doing it too. Mile 3 was all up hill, from 2 miles to 2.87 miles was an uphill climb in front of Herky High School. Then I got to run down hill for 0.87 miles. That was nice. :) The last 0.3 miles of the run is a pretty steep uphill climb also. All of my runs end uphill, thanks to the road I live on. The triathlon ends uphill, so I guess it's good preparation. Gonna go swim this evening. Will post about the swim later.
