So I had to miss the first team run which was on 4/7/2018 and for a distance of 1 mile. Since the group was focused on training for the half marathon, I had to double up my efforts.
I decided to run the next day to keep up the momentum. I had done this route before so mentally I already knew I could finish it somewhat. So 4 miles and going up/down a freeway overpass twice, I finally managed to finish the run.
I was exhausted. I had not done any warm-ups, I just went and finished the run. Not the easiest run going from a 0.96 miler to 4 miles suddenly but I was glad I had managed to break that mental barrier.
Avg HR: 175 (I had to really push myself and my pace didn't work in my favor either)
