Conclusion from Day 45: I like Megabus a lot, but I will not ride it overnight again. Ever. It makes for a sleepy Leslie.
Moving on to today...
Today's scheduled run: 4 miles
Today's completed run: 4.1 miles
Pace: 9:44 (avg.)
Today, also known as the-day-the-hill-made-a-slow-poke-out-of-Leslie, I ran in North Carolina. The worst part about that is the fact that the hill on which I ran would make a seasoned Blue Ridge Mountain runner chuckle. They run mountains; I work at 110 percent to make it a mile up from the river. These elevation charts explain why my Baltimore training does not prepare me for a mile of uphill, ~300 ft gain.
|A typical 4 miles in Baltimore. No hill to even warrant a rating.|
|The 4 miles in today's run. A long, steady climb.|
