Speed What?

I was scheduled for 5mi of speed work yesterday. But I left work the day before with a headache and decided to sleep in. I figured I'd do it after work. I still had a headache, so I didn't. Went to bed last night. Dreamed about the headache I had. Woke up with the same headache (just less intense), but went to the track anyway. In any case, I said to hell with speed work. Just run 5mi and call it a day. Headache and all, the last 2mi were sub-9:00. So that should count for something.

Fucking win!!

You consistently got faster with each mile girlie!

You need to be my coach! Perhaps run behind me with a whip and a boom box to get me going!!

My run sucked today. But don't they all??

Great workout! And with a headache and all. Usually I find headaches disappear with running.

Sorry to hear that you had a nasty headache. I admire you for going out by running with a headache. I don't think I could have done it.
