5 miles. Done and done

Here I am at the end of my 5 miler. I met the family at Einstein. It's almost a perfect 5 mile route. I added on a few tenths at the end in order to have some walking time, but good route! That's Adelyn in front of me. She was excited to see me and race or not, it's always a pleasure to see my kiddos and hubby at the end of a run!

Man oh man it was hard this morning. Let me take that back. The first mile was hard. The second two were awesome (I stopped and took some great pictures along my way on Butler's campus, but my battery is charging at the moment...) and the last two I was exhausted. Lugging my body along felt so hard. I started to walk for a tenth of a mile and run for 2. It worked pretty well and I even had a couple of spurts of energy, but it was hard! However, I finished and felt great. I took a long nap this afternoon and was convinced I was going to be really sore when I woke up - but it wasn't so bad! Tomorrow I'll do some yoga and stay really on top of my weekly runs this week. I'm looking to do another 5 next weekend and maybe a 5k on Sunday with one of my students.
