How many people can say they got to see the Philadelphia Philharmonic rehearse while they are on a training run?
It’s a gorgeous day here today, and I had a spectacular run in the park. My schedule had me doing a 6 mile “as you feel” run, meaning I should ignore my Garmin watch and listen to my body to determine my pace. I surprised myself with my discipline in not checking my watch every couple minutes.
I ran 6.25 miles in 52:58, averaging about 8:28 per mile. This was not even close to an all-out effort and totally hammers my race PR for a 10k, which was 55:39 back in May. I’m still worried about making my target half marathon time, although I’m right on or above track according to my training. I guess I can run faster, but it takes more than that to leave my worries behind.
