A cold rain pretty much the entire day. This was supposed to be a “structured fartlek”. Now imagine doing that on a treadmill! So I just started at 6 mph, and by the time I got to the last few, I was up to 6.3 mph (9:30mm). Remember, it was only 1 minute fast — I can run fast for a minute!
What is it about Wednesday? Stupid h word was back. I dragged myself through 4 easy miles; I guess muscle memory somehow kicked in because even though I felt super slow, it was normal paces.
Cold rain & an early start had me on the treadmill. Took it easy & felt pretty good.
I’d like to say I pushed through the relentless sun & had a great finish time, but unfortunately today was not my day for that. Look for my recap next week.
I finished, I feel good (after refueling & rehydrating), so life is good & there’s one last half for 2018.
Favorites of the week
I will never regret time by the ocean. Challenging myself. Good eats. And running into Skirt Sisters.
Let’s get the conversation started:
What is your favorite season to race (mine is Fall, as evidenced by the upcoming races)?
Are you happy or sad now that it’s officially Fall?
Tried anything new for running/racing lately that you love?
