Today's LSD Run

No, I didn't take any drugs before I went out to run. The LSD run is the Long Slow Distance run.

I intended to do about 5.5 miles today, but I did 6 miles instead. I don't have a pedometer, so, yikes. But I feel pretty good and a one mile increase after a month or so of improving my time at 5 miles is pretty good.

Here are my workout stats for today:

Walk - 2 miles, long warm up and cool down, LOL
Run -
6 miles
1 hour 16 minutes
830 calories
164 HR average
Pace: 12:44 min./mile (not bad for there being a lot of traffic)

And it was POURING about 3 miles in and has not let up since. There was also a lot of traffic at one point, so I would say my pace was pretty good. Long and slow and steady. :)

Oh, and my mom started the Couch to 5K program today along with my dog Sophie! Awesome stuff. She's 52 but she's done the NYC Century Bike Race a few times and rides 12 miles on her bike to and from work every day.

Wow you are doing soo good Sars. You blow me away. Being athletic must definatley run in the family! I think its going to be so great for you to be able to share running with your mom. I know i would love to share it with my daughter. And we both do have a love for running but she's in CA and i'm in TX. I went trail running day before yesterday, about 5 miles total. Let me tell you trail running you use muscles you didn't know you even had! I was so sore afterward but a good kind of sore if you know what i mean. Take care. JInx
