4-19-2012 5.5 mile run

Lets start off with some splits:

The Farm Loop (4x) 6:18PM
5.5 miles in 1:02:09
846.09 calories
Playlist: Black Legend radio station on Pandora

MILE   TIME      AVG. PACE
1          10:30       10'30"/mi   (I knew I went out to fast)
2          21:51       11'21"/mi   (had to slow it down)
3          33:31       11'40"/mi   (slower ...)
4          45:14       11'43"/mi   (OK perfect!)
5          56:22       11'09"/mi   (bring it home strong)
 .5     1:02:09

First run in 2 months, didn't know how I would feel, really thought that maybe I should have just done 3, but decided to just go for it.
Felt very good afterwards, spent and tired but good. I think it has a lotto do with the trail being sand and being very forgiving.
Now its just a matter of keeping this going, and seeing where it goes.

And at the end of it all, this is what I had to look at.... just seems to put everything into perspective.
