another solo Sunday
This morning I got up super-early and drove 30 minutes to meet my club at 6 for the weekly long run. As it turns out, I was too slow for the fast folks and too fast for the slow folks so I ran the whole thing alone. I ran 16 miles @ 7:57 average pace - the first 4 way too fast, then pretty consistent 8s - 8:10s for the next 12. It was kind of hard keeping that up alone, and I missed my old long-run partner today. He has recently joined another running club.
I've been thinking about joining another club myself. My club is based in St Pete - 35 miles away - and the time spent driving is kind of a drag. Right now I'm neither as fast nor as slow as anyone in the club, so why drive a half-hour each way just to run alone? I can step right outside my house and run alone.
