My overall pace was 8:36 min/mile.
Total ascent: 498 feet. I knew my route was hilly!
By the time I got home I guzzled water and plopped down in the floor and stretched. Sweaty doesn't quite cover how drenched I was. Sweat was dripping off my hair, ears, chin, and nose. Ew, gross.
This photo doesn't do it justice...
The heat, humidity, and hills better pay off! I've been both mentally and physically preparing myself for training for Disney Marathon. I've been working harder than ever. I'm picking up my pace and crosstraining with core/strength workouts. I know my training plan is going to be rough. I start September 20. It will be a lot tougher with a lot more miles each week. But, I'm really excited about it!
I will reach my goal, I will be fit, and I will have fun!
