Ship’s Log–September 17th


I didn’t set out on today’s run with the intent of going all out, but when my training app informed me that my first mile had been run at a ridiculous speed, I decided to push it to see how fast I could do today’s 5k without killing myself. When I got home, I plugged that time into McMillan’s Race Calculator, and, holy crap, my estimated finish time for a half is just under 2 hours. There is hope for Sunday. There is hope.
