My internet was down yesterday, so I didn't get to post. But, anyhow, yesterday I ran 5K outside from home and back. It's all dirt road with some long stretches of incline (and decline, too, of course!). My time was a shade under 39:00, which seems depressingly slow. Especially since I never stopped running at all and felt like I was consistently going faster than when I did this same run once before (just before the St. Patty's Day race). Oh well, it still felt great to complete, and I was happy to do it. I'll keep working to improve.
Yesterday was the first time I listened only to relaxing, soft music during the entire run. Usually, I listen to "harder" music to keep me energized. But, yesterday I found the music helped keep me relaxed, and I could hear my breathing and footsteps on the ground. Interesting difference.
