no pre-run mapping 5-miler

went out this morning for an easy 5, and for the first time in a long time i didn't map out a route on mapmyrun beforehand. i usually measure out a run so that i can be sure to get in my mileage before getting too close back to home and therefore avoid being tempted to quit early, but this morning i just went out and turned on whichever roads i felt like turning onto. it was nice for a change, and i ended up running 5.25 (mapmyrun) or 5.5 (nike+). i logged the shorter distance because i'd rather short myself than give extra credit.

kt and i were going to meet up out at furman again for 12 this morning but she had to head back to charleston early to prepare for the hurricane that is forecasted to hit us later this week/weekend. i held my recovery/easy pace for the 5miler but my legs were a little tired from last night's mile repeats, so it was probably for the best.

did a 42min basic yoga workout (yoga shakti) after the run. i can tell it's starting to get easier to twist myself up into most of the 'positions' so hopefully i can move up soon to the more advanced workouts.

am run: 5.25mi (47:32 / 9:03pace)
