i fully intended to see how far i could run in an hour this afternoon. i started out feeling pretty good, but that changed soon enough. before i was even out of town headed south the heat and the wind conspired against me. i started to feel not so good.
i ran for about 11 minutes and then had to stop to walk for a bit. from that point on, it was run a little, walk a little, run a little, walk a little. i just couldn't sustain my run for very long. i kept trying to put together more than a half mile at a time, but i'm not sure i did it more than once or twice.
i made it to my turn around just short of two miles south of town and jogged over to the other side to come back. when i got to the river, a new song was starting up on my mp3 player, so i decided to see if i could run for the whole song. i did it, but then i had to walk for quite a while.
when i got back to town, there was no question about continuing. i ran up to vine, turned east and headed straight to the house to cool off. i'll have to try to run an hour some other time. today was not the day.
