9/1/12 Training

My plan to run 6 miles early Saturday morning was rudely interrupted by discovering water in our basement.  Apparently after a drought all summer long, our sump pump decided to quit the day we finally received some rain.  We spent all day Saturday trying to remove the water which totally wore me out.  I was not sure how my body would respond to a race pace run, even if it was only 6 miles.

To my surprise, the run went well as I was able to sneak away a little late in the afternoon.  The 6.01 mile run lasted 41:15 or 6:50/mile pace.  It did not rain during my run, but the clouds provided a much-needed shade from the sun, although it was quite humid.
