This morning I headed out for my long run of the week. I am at the end of Week 1 of half marathon training and today's run was 4 miles. I spent some time yesterday fiddling around with Map My Run trying to create a route that was as close to 4 miles as possible. I managed to create one that was 4 miles exactly. I love Map My Run. I set out at 8:20 a.m. and hoped to finish in 40 minutes. The weather this morning was lovely: about 60 degrees, dry, and sunny. I felt good. Strong. I maintained a steady pace and pulled into the driveway at home exactly 40 minutes later, at 9:00. Well, that's easy: I averaged 10:00 per mile.
