This morning's run was cut short due to all the whining and complaining I was having to listen to. Normally I can block out this sort of behavior on a run, but I reached my limit and knew that it would be better to just go on home instead of getting angrier and angrier... If they were just a little older, I would've just sent them home (especially since our first mile ended at our street) and then gone on my merry way to finish the run...
What should have a 25 minute run (and some where in the neighborhood of 2.5 miles) was a rather just a mile. For that mile, though, I made really good time:
First half mile: 5:30 minutes (slight down hill on the first leg, and then up hill the second leg)
Total mile: 11:19 minutes!
I was pretty worn out after that first mile, so I know my second mile would have been a lot slower... but I'm okay with that.
