5.66 miles / 58:28 / 10:19 pace (not too bad considering my many walk breaks!)
I think I finally did it...I took a run that wore both dogs out! Well, "run" may be a stretch. Today ended up being a run-walk since it is way too hot to be running midday. But I did it anyway since I really wanted to and needed to. I was happy just thinking about getting out for a run today. I thought I'd just do 3-4 today since it was already 11:30 or so and you know, it's summertime. But when I went outside, it was actually still really very pleasant! There were a bunch of clouds (almost looked like rain) and a great cool breeze. I felt awesome for the first 2 miles. Then the sun came out and the dreamy run became hot, then hotter, and finally drenching! I stopped several times for extended walk breaks - heat, side cramps, and by the end I started feeling badly about dragging the dogs along since I really did start dragging them a little by mile 4.5 or 5. Yeah, it's the dogs I was looking out for...I could have run 5 more miles, easy! Yeah...that's it... :) At least I got so dehydrated I didn't have to pee today, ha!
