Took the ACT this morning. Boy am I glad that I'll NEVER have to take that again! The frustrating thing is if it wasn't timed I could totally ace it. I probably could even if I got another 5 minutes a section! Argh!
After all that frustration, I took it out on a nice long-er run and randomly decided to run with my brother's iPod, which I've never done before, so that was interesting. I'm not sure if I like running with music. One of the nice things about going for a run is the time to think and relax mentally and with music you don't really get that. But I think if I'm doing a speed workout by myself it could be nice because it would help take the mind off how hard you're breathing and how much your legs burn.
Went on the Bloomington loop 8-miler, wanted to run faster than yesterday's 7-miler and ended up averaging barely faster than Wednesday's 6-miler. Felt pretty good for the most part, legs are getting back to normal (less sore) which is really nice. And as I finished my run, I realized that the chalk arrows were from the "Save-a-sister" run this morning. Ha. That would've been much more fun that what I did this morning. 7:24, 7:52, 7:34, 7:24, 7:47, 7:48, 7:40, 7:26 - avg. 7:37/mi. (Alchemy 254.8)
