Saturday’s Successful 17

Good morning! I just finished a 17 mile run and I feel surprisingly good! I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I had some running buddies for part of it. Seriously, I think it helps so much. Katherine and Liz ran with me for about 9 miles and then I ran the remainder of my 17 alone. We talked about some pretty exciting stuff. I found out Katherine’s good news (but I won’t tell) and we celebrated Liz finding out she was placed at her top choice hospital for her upcoming residency! Congrats to both!

It seemed a little chilly when I first got up this morning, so I wore shorts, a tank and a long sleeve shirt. I knew the long sleeve shirt was a mistake within the first three miles. We headed toward Central Park from our usual meet-up spot around 81st and York. From there were did a full exterior loop and then hit the bridal path upper part for a bit more – topping out at 9 miles. They headed out the East 90th entrance and I headed around the loop again. Boy it got really hot by the time I finished around 10:30. Here are the full 17 stats:

Mile 1 – 9:44
Mile 2 – 8:51
Mile 3 – 8:55
Mile 4 – 9:11
Mile 5 – 8:49
Mile 6 – 9:04
Mile 7 – 8:57
Mile 8 – 9:15
Mile 9 – 9:16
Mile 10 – 8:40
Mile 11 – 8:57
Mile 12 – 9:07
Mile 13 – 9:05
Mile 14 – 8:43
Mile 15 – 8:50
Mile 16 – 8:40
Mile 17 – 8:49

Total mileage – 17.04 miles in 2:33:33

I am feeling a little bit sore, but not altogether that bad. Time to hit the shower and get ready to head to Brooklyn to hang with some lovely lady friends! And what a gorgeous day out! So amazing. The people running the NYC Half Marathon tomorrow are going to have an amazing day. Good luck to all those runners!

What are your plans for the rest of the weekend?

I hope you can get out and enjoy the nice weather! 🙂 Have a great weekend.
