I wish it were my favorite number, but not today. I ran seven miles this morning, average pace: 10:09 per mile. I’m a little disappointed with that time, but Mother Nature was taking her revenge on my reproductive organs and I forgot to take pain relievers. Sigh.
Miles one & two were hard. Three has always been the beginning of my favorite miles. I felt somewhat strong miles three through six. Although, I must say, seven was very, very hard – this slow mile made my average pace over ten minutes – eh. Finishing time 1 hr, 11 min and 3 seconds.
The only thing that makes this female situation marginally more bearable is the fact that I just made my designer blush by using the term “reproductive organs.
