Perspective...we all need some now and then. That is all I can say about my running attempt this afternoon. With the Ft. Benning triathalon coming up on Saturday, I decided to time myself on the running portion of the tri and see if I could maintain an eight minute mile average speed. Well, it helps to have some perspective of the kind of shape you are really in; not as good as I thought. The first mile clicked by in 8 minutes but it went down from there. I ended up running the 3.1 miles (5 K) in a little over 27 minutes. Feet, legs, hips all felt fine but my stomach was killing me. I only hope this Saturday will go better.
