I wasn’t sure how it would go, my hamstring was poking at me off and on during the day. We had the largest group to date show up. I was 2 min late and missed the group photo but here they are. 21 total plus kids. That’s crazy awesome!!!
I set out and ended up by myself (yeah crazy with that many ladies) but then the main group turned off to get another add on loop. I saw there was two ladies not far behind me but I was running down hill and didn’t want to run up a hill to meet up with them yet. I found a good spot and looped around to meet them. We stayed together and the bigger group (also faster) caught up with us. I just kept going at a constant pace for the most part. Hamstring was poking but not painful, just a little tight. Hip felt fine overall. I wanted to do the entire 3 mile route but as I got to that turn, I decided that my leg wasn’t happy enough to do that especially with the hill I knew i had to climb. So I headed back and got 2.5 miles done and the most consistent pace I’ve done in a long time. Woohoo!!! I like the other view on my Garmin Connect that shows you the elevation (in much better detail) with your pace over the top but I need to get software updated on my work computer. I started slowing to a 13 min pace after 1.5 miles because that’s where we start climbing up a slow long hill. Very happy with how I did last night.
