Someone Tell Me This Run Counts

Workout: Ran outside 10 miles (91 minutes)

This weather and view:


(pretty, no?)

plus this playlist:


(If you like Lady Gaga, get that Natalia Kills song. I always think it’s Miss G at first and love it!)

equals this run:


If I can keep that pace up for another 3.1 miles, Iโ€™ll have my sub-2-hour half marathon that I now only dream about. This run was without fuel too, so maybe it would have been better with some?

But my question is, does this run count as a good practice run when there was a stop (and Garmin pause) every 2.5 miles for various reasons and three stops in the last mile to walk for one minute because I was pooped?

    Yes it counts! Sorry I was such a horrible running buddy today.

    • You made it 7 miles! That’s not horrible at all! And at least you weren’t feelin’ it during a practice run. You got it out of you system and you’re set for Gasparilla!

    Sure!! Adrenaline in a race will carry you through ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I say it totally counts! Bad run or good run during training just means you are prepared for anything that can happen during a race ๐Ÿ™‚

    It counts! As long as you get the mileage in I think that’s all that really matters.

    It TOTALLY counts! What a beautiful place to run! I think a sub-2 hour half is TOTALLY within your reach!
