A promisingly sunny early morning turned into a cloudy, windy late morning. Opted for the treadmill rather than doing battle with the elements.
Distance: 10.5 miles
Woke up feeling off. Ended up taking a nap after being up an hour or so. Never quite shook it off.
jP wanted to take a friend to open gym time in the gymnastic gym at the rec center, so I loaded up the boys and headed over. While they swung on ropes, jumped on trampolines and generally worked off an immense amount of energy, I went to the treadmill and tried to find some energy.
Did a 1 mile w/u at 8:27, five miles at 6:58, then four more at 7:30 - 8:27...just letting it flow based on how I was feeling, which, overall, was less than stellar. Walked half-mile as a c/d.
Feeling a bit whooped post-run.
Good post today from Roes. Gives a shout-out to some top-notch, unheralded runners, including PG, Fanselow and Schlarb. Good stuff.
