This morning I woke up indecisive. Do I run on the Riverwalk? Do I drive over and try a new run on the dike in Warrenton? Is it raining? Do I need a hat? Do I run a tempo or intervals? Do I even feel like running?...
I have these debates with myself all too often and it drives me nuts! Thankfully, keeping a pretty good schedule written out on my calendar ends such debates. Today was 4 miles (not up for debate!) and I chose the high school track so I could run on a nice, gentle surface. I chose a tempo run because I just needed to push myself and remember how to run fast. My last week's runs have all felt so slow. And with my pseudo-injury...my runs have just been so-so.
Today was awesome! Nice and fast 7:35 pace was just what the Dr. ordered. And as an added bonus, my legs felt great! My left shin feels a bit tender when massaged, but overall I can't complain!!
I thought the pace map was too funny not to share:
|I went around, then around, then around and around some more!|
Check out my 4:31 stretch! That was when I kicked at the very end.
