Today marked day 22 of 76 for my Half Marathon trainig with RunKeeper. Today was a 5 miler that rekindled the mileage growths in the coming weeks. This past Sunday i ran 12 miles in 2 hours, but had taken the last 3 days off to recover a shin splint that had been bugging me.
Today was super hot in the afterrnoon, not the best running conditions, however I did ok with an average 10 minute miles in the the 95 degree heat while pounding the streets of Spokane on my feet. Here's the map.
The one savior today was my new Omni-Freeze cap from Columbia. It was amazing at keeping the sweat out of my eyes, which is a huge problem for me....that and nipple chaffing, but that's another subject.
Stopped to take pic of the Spokane River from today's run!
