Friday was my first full 3 mile run. I had thought that Wednesday was the first, but after looking back at the track on the computer, I found that it was 2.75 miles. I'm not too happy about that.
My runs are 5 minutes walk warmup, 3.0 miles run, and 5 minutes walk cool-down. After the walk warmup on Friday's run and a few hundred feet into the running portion, I pressed the status button on my earphones to hear the distance remaining. 2.74 miles. W. T. F?
I quickly stopped my workout on Endomondo and deleted the 5 minute warmup and restarted the workout. This time, after a few hundred feet, Endo said 2.99 miles remaining. Much better!
Towards the end of my run, I did have to make a route adjustment because of the Reds' fireworks show for that evening closing part of the sidewalk for setup, but since the Reds beat the Pirates and continued their climb in first place, I'm okay with that.
It is now 6 days to my first 5K of the year, The Brian Rohne Memorial Run.
