I couldn't go to RTW run. Apparently, I was the driver to Alex's black belt test. So, a local run through the neighborhood had to do. It was brisk!

Mile 1: 9:33
Mile 2: 9:29
Mile 3: 9:30
Mile 4: 8:26
0.19: 1:25 (7:25 pace)

Turned up the pace a bit on the last mile. I mostly practiced my "Chi" running. I've been lazy and have been letting my running form devolve.

Today was the second inter-club meet between 7 Hills and TWRC at Huntsville. 7H took back the saw. Boy, can you say hills? These were hills you just cannot experience running in The Woodlands. It just shows you that I need a little more variety in my training.

Mile 1: 8:41
Mile 2: 7:54
Mile 3.1: 9:53

Splits are all over the place. Obviously there was no planning and no fore-knowledge of course topography.

Still, running takes me places. This was my first visit to SHSU and to Huntsville.

Oh, I also joined 7 Hills today.

Hope your son did well on the black belt test! Between my nephew and hubby going through their tests, it sounds like they can be pretty tiring!

Yes, he passed the test. He's been walking on clouds since.

Thanks K!

Welcome to the club, and thanks for driving up. When you get back from the windy city you need to come hit the trails. Talk about adding some variety!
