Dammit… I went back and double-checked the total miles for my run. I use this mapping software on another computer to plot out routes, and like I said in my previous post, today’s 5+ mile route was a new one for me, so I wasn’t entirely sure I was following it properly.
At any rate, I missed a small section and the distance I actually ran was only 5.26 miles, give or take. Which slows down my pace (assuming my total time was correct) to around 10:28. Which isn’t bad, and feels closer to what I thought I was doing, but, damn, for a bit there, I thought I rocked a bit harder than I actually rocked.
