The Rest of the Day

After the "chocolate shotgun" experience this morning, everything else about the today was like buttah. I had classes and then came home and cleaned the house very thoroughly -- we have houseguests arriving tomorrow (my sister-in-law + her husband + their 2 boys; it's gonna = a house full for the next 4 days!) -- and then I went for a 6 miler.

1: 9:35
2: 9:23
3: 9:37
4: 9:49
5: 10:03
6: 9:57

Total Time: 58:25

So, my times tonight forced me to contemplate: If running the second half of your run faster than the first is a "negative" split, is running the second half slower than the first a "positive" split? Makes it sound like a good thing, doesn't it?

Sorry to hear about the uncomfortable bodily issues this morning.... glad to see your run wasn't affected.

By the way... I don't think I will be able to cut out my beer... I want one now!

If that is indeed the case, then I run positive splits all the time! I'll take yours anytime, though. :)
