|Morning running isn't getting any easier. The only good thing about it is knowing that I got it out the way. And that I can spend the rest of the day being as lazy as I want to be. Anyway, I just took it easy. I didn't push myself at all. It's bad enough I'm running this early. So just moving is my goal. Speed isn't everything. I guess my main thing is to be consistent and/or have negative splits. That way I know I didn't start out too fast. After the run was the best though. I interrupted my cool down walk home with a few minutes on the swings. I guess another good thing about being in the park so early is avoiding the rugrats (I love kids, can't you tell).|
In other news, I opted for yoga as cross training instead of a 2miler yesterday. My thighs were still sore and I was just tired. I do feel better today though. I figured I'd ditch the 2miler anyway because I'm planning on 8mi on Saturday instead of my originally scheduled 6mi. No, I'm not trying to kill myself. I'm participating in another 8 on the 8th virtual race. It's funny because when I first ran 8mi it was for this race. And it was my first time running this distance ever. Mind you, I was scheduled for 6mi on that day as well. I just took it slow. You can't jack anything up if you go slow. At least, that's my theory. So that's the plan for this weekend. I figured I'd try for a nice and easy 10:30 pace. I should be able to maintain that for 8mi IF I'm not running at the crack of dawn. We're expecting some nice weather, low 60s and highs in the low 80s (I think). So I shouldn't have to get up too early to beat any heat.
Okay, so I never got the falafel I wanted the other day. I'm definitely going to make time to get some today. If anyone's in south jersey, check out Norma's. I love the veg combo.
