Long Run - 10 Miles - 08-29-09
I met the group at 5:00am for a ten mile run. We ran from the Old Village out to Sullivan's Island.
This was a shorter run, but at or near marathon pace. We started off with a warm up mile (12:25) through the Old Village (this was with the whole group). My legs were really tight from the track workout on Wednesday, I think I could have used another mile of warming up.
Andrew, Cathy and I picked up the pace and ran towards Sullivan's Island (8:55, 8:40, 8:48, 8:52). We stopped to refill our water at the half way point, which was at Fort Moultrie. It took a little while to get our pace back up, but we got up to it and stayed with it until we got back to the Old Village (9:14, 8:59, 8:52, 8:48). We finished up with a cool down mile that we all needed (11:02).
As we were finishing our run, Andrew noticed that one of his nipples was bleeding. It is pretty hardcore when you are bleeding all over your shirt as you finish a run. So for the last mile we talked about ways to keep your nipples from bleeding (nipple guards, Vaseline, band aids, anti chafing sticks, etc...). You just don't get these types of conversations any other place...
