4.0

No, I did not buy a new iPhone.

I ran 4 miles last night! Claudia and I have been alternating between running around her neighborhood and mine on Wednesday evenings, and yesterday was her turn. We went around the lake in her community in 2-minute run, 2-minute walk intervals. There was a small discrepancy between our iphone apps: her Nike+ app said we did 4.09 miles in 52 minutes, at a pace of 13.34 minutes per mile. Mapmyrun said we did 3.86 miles in 55 minutes, at a pace of 14:15 minutes per mile. We decided on a happy medium of 4 miles at under 14 minutes per mile. We had a small celebration when we passed 3.1 miles (aka 5K) at 42 minutes.

I will admit, I struggled throughout. Not sure if it’s because I feel bloaty due to PMS, or because I hadn’t run since Sunday (I’ve been really good about running every other day), but today I feel great. My legs hurt, but it’s a good hurt. I’m really looking forward to the Twilight 5K in three weeks.

    Woohoo! Good job hanging in there even though you wanted to stop.

    I’m going to use my other app next time to see how it compares with yours. I’ve got like 3 of them, so I can alternate depending on what kind of mood I’m in. Ha ha.
