the westport summer series 6.8 miler at compo beach this morning was my first bit of running since the 5 miler in central park last weekend. i think six straight days w/out running is something of a record (albeit not one i'm happy about) for me. my recovery from the compartment syndrome that's effected my right foot is coming along - slowly, but surely.
as for the race itself, never let stifling heat and humidity get in the way of course records. both the men and women's winner broke their respective course records this morning. that's impressive any day of the week. but with today's weather, it's downright amazing!
i ran a 53:13, 7:50 pace - which included walking to the top of the hill in mile four (or was that three?). it was a solid 2 minutes slower than the 51 minutes i ran this course in last summer. but given that i got to run it in the first place, i'm more than pleased with the outcome :D
i'll add a link to the results once they've been posted.
