Total Distance

ran with a watch today, hopefully doing that from now on. first mile i felt slow and tired, my body lasted me through finals but now that they’re over i can feel the lack of sleep and proper nutrition, proper recovery, etc. anyway I ran the first mile in 7:05 which really surprised me, i guess i’m in better shape than i thought. tried not to speed up and ran a 6:36 second mile, and i got excited from that and tried to run the next mile around tempo effort. 5:36 with a faster second half. then drove to the rec center, ran another mile and worked out/stretched/core/etc

4 in the evening. Wanted to do 8 or 12 but I didn't get much sleep last night and felt exausted on the run, but better as it went on. Learned how to change autolap and now I have it set to 4 miles which I like a lot. 6:48 avg pace which leads me to believe 6 min pace might actually be easy, which is a big confidence booster with workouts starting next week. Need to start going to bed early if I'm waking up at 5 though
