I did it! I ran today despite spending most of the day scrapbooking! :D
1/2 mile warm-up
3 miles @ 8:38
1/2 mile cool-down
I don't think I'll be able to sustain that pace come May 4th. I think I have hit a plateau as I haven't seen any improvement this time around. This, among other things, has bothered me. I'll keep pushing forward and see what becomes of this 3rd attempt. Hopefully, I can stay under 4 hours.
