A New Milestone: 6-mile Run


On Tuesday night, I reached another milestone in my training by running a full six miles, non-stop!  I even did it wearing my FiveFingers!

This week, instead of doing another strength workout with my trainer, I decided that it would be good to try something new, so we went out for a run instead.   While I initially balked at a six mile run, I knew that I could do it if we kept the pace to 11:00 or slower.

Well, we ended up running a little faster than that in the end.

3-miles out, 3-miles back, nice and smooth!

Stats:

Distance: 6.03 miles ~ Time: 1:03:43 ~ Pace: 10:34 ~ Avg Hr: 170

While the next day, I felt quite fatigued, knowing that I can go the distance is awesome.  6.03 miles is not that far off of a 10K run and the 10:34 pace is not bad at all.

So, what’s next for me?  You are just going to have to stay tuned.
