A hot 2 miles
As a finish to my training for the 5K on Saturday, I ran a comfortable 2 miles at a 11:30 pace. I took walking breaks every half mile but drank no liquids. I had water in my car and drank a lot when I finished. I was late getting out, and it was 91 (F) in the shade. Now, two days of rest and then the race.
