1- There is a slight chance I will drag my but out to join Team Go for an open water swim tomorrow.
2- It is going to be 105 degrees tomorrow and I don't want to die.
3- I will be going to do track repeats with the group on Sunday and I don't want to have it back-to-back with a long run. Look at me respecting my body...;)
The crazy thing is it was a really STRONG run for me and I felt very good before, during and after it. I would have never predicted it would be a good run because I had...
1-Spent the day at the beach with two kids (enough said)
2- Not eaten dinner yet
3- It was still very hot
But low and behold...it was still a good run! The problem is I'm not sure what made it that way because there were too many variables!!! Was it that I was running at night? Was it that I didn't drink coffee today (caffeine does give me a high but it sometimes makes me too jittery and my breathing gets off)? Was it the Zico water I chugged before hand? Was it that Coach John keeps telling me to run a 10 something minute mile and I am not worried about pace at all? Was it the new country music everyone keeps pushing on me? Was it the night running? Is it that I am just becoming more accumstomed to the schedule?...
|After the run...I may look hot, sweaty and tired...but this is actually what good looks like on me lol|
|Me triple checking my times...because I really was suprised that this "good" feeling also equalled out to "good" times for me...|
(I've been struggling with my normal 9:30 for a while now...)
