Jamie C. and I pulled into the parking lot at SCP just as our intended running group was leaving, so I knew I was going to end up running the last few miles by myself, but that was okay. We set out on our loop of the park, but I lost Jamie at about mile 3 to a restroom break. That left me with my tunes for the next 5. Not sure what it is about solo running that gets into my head, but it does. My goal for the summer is to build my base so that a half in the fall does not kick my tail. I'm pretty consistent at 6 miles, so I decided to go for 8 today and see how it felt. So it was sad that at mile 5 I was ready to stop. After I left the park, I headed up Ridge to 29th and went west, which has a tough uphill grade to it ... that didn't help. I turned around at Tyler and headed back to the park and have never been so glad to see that finish line. The last 3 miles really hurt, which was a little discouraging. I will do that distance again next weekend...hopefully with better results!
