9 miles + Negitive Splits!!!

This morning I got up at 4:20 got dressed and went for my run! I felt really great. I thought a couple times towards the end of my run about how I could run it 2 more times. I did my run today at a consistent pace and did it without stopping. At this point in time I'd have to stop and walk a couple times, but I'm thinking by June I won't need to walk at all. I think I'll have to figure out ways to not get bored while I run for such a long distance. I got done in 1.42.50! I love when I run negative splits.

Here they are:
Mile 1: 12.36
Mile 2: 11.53
Mile 3: 11.51
Mile 4: 11.36
Mile 5: 11.15
Mile 6: 11.06
Mile 7: 11.01
Mile 8: 10.49
Mile 9: 10.40

I think it's so cool when I run negative splits on such a long run. You'd think it would be the other way around where I'd go slower towards the end cause of how far I'm going, but nope. :) I feel really good about my run!!

So, I weighed in at WW and I maintained again for the 3rd week in a row. I'm still 168.6. I haven't been tracking for a while, so this week my goal is to track all my food and eat lots of protein. That means lots of buffalo chicken wraps and rotisserie chicken salads. YUM!

I also want to try hard to get out and run early in the morning. I feel so much better when I run early.

TIME FOR LUNCH! :)
