Dark o'clock run. It took me awhile to find my mojo. I started a new audiobook and it always takes me awhile to figure out all the characters!
So its been interesting this training cycle. I've been doing more structured speedwork (track and hills). But I feel like I'm getting slower on these longer runs. Last training cycle, I would do MP/HMP miles during the run. I could run this course in an 8:30's pace and today (and other days) I only squeaked out an 8:59 pace. Just when I think I have running figured out, it reminds me I know nothing!
This is my last run of the week. Tim and I are heading to Trek for the remainder of the week. I'm hoping for a small miracle that my running won't suffer. I just hope it is not crazy hot!! Tally HO!
