Running for Boston, Part 4

This was our last run before the races on Saturday! Joey's training schedule had him running 2 miles, so I asked if he would mind running a 5k equivalent with me. It would be a slower pace for him, but would be difficult for me. It went really well! My runkeeper app actually worked this time, thank goodness. And even though the hilly areas were difficult, we kept a good pace. I'm feeling good about the 5k on Saturday, although of course I won't have Joey with me for motivation. I'm just going to pump up my music and try to get through it as quickly as I can!

Pace breakdown:
1/2 mile: 4:34 - 9:08/mile pace
1 mile: 9:10 - 9:10/mile pace (9:12/mile pace in last 1/2 mile)
1 1/2 miles: 13:38 - 9:05/mile pace (8:56/mile pace in last 1/2 mile)
2 miles: 18:33 - 9:17/mile pace (9:50/mile pace in last 1/2 mile)
2 1/2 miles: 23:15 - 9:18/mile pace (9:24/mile pace in last 1/2 mile)
3 miles: 27:46 - 9:15/mile pace (9:02/mile pace in last 1/2 mile)

Total: 3.11 miles: 28:45 - 9:15/mile pace

I bet you can guess where the biggest hill was! (And where I had to recover from the hill)

Miles for Boston:
12.1/26.2 completed!
