How I felt

Considering this is the first time I've ever run more than 3 miles, I think it went pretty well. The 4th interval was the hardest.


It didn't feel too bad, but Fitbit had a pretty high heartrate through most of the run: 30 peak minutes.


Got chased by a dog, which has never happened to me in town. It made me pick up the pace a bit, and I thought it was going to cause me to run out of steam, but I managed to finish.
