6 miles with the buzz of cars

The Indy racing league Grand Prix of St. Petersburg is happening this weekend downtown. I live three miles from the street course and I can still hear the constant whine of engines from my house. I decided to take my 6 mile run on my usual waterfront downtown course just to check things out. I turned around about a half mile from the course, but it sure was loud. Tomorrow, I’ll get closer on my long run. The run today went better than last week. I started out slower and went 4 miles without walk, then I took a 40 second walk break, followed by another 40 second walk break after 5 miles. Overall, my average pace was a little faster this week and I once again finished strong.
