The first 2.2 miles felt great. The I turned the corner and started running into the wind; not so great. All in all, I felt pretty good and relaxed. It was nice to add an extra 2 and a half miles on than what I normally run lately.
One mile warm up with my daughter Mary. She wants to do the two-mile race for London's Run at the end of the month. I set the Garmin to alert me at half mile intervals, but I must've hit the wrong button when we began because it didn't start. So I ran to where I believed was a half mile away and then started the Garmin. We ran for a quarter mile and she got a side ache and had to start walking. We walked for a bit and then she started going again. As soon as Garmin alerted me that we had gone half a mile, she stopped. But we were only about 100 feet from our house. The last half mile including the walking took us exactly 6 minutes. Then I went and ran a mile alone next to the Queen Creek Wash, turned around and came back. When I got home my 5 year old was waiting to go running. I told her we could go to the end of the street and come back. That ended up being two tenths of a mile; perfect for her. Below are the stats for my two mile run:
