Today’s run (street) 2.35 miles at 9:45
I have a speaking engagement today and that usually means skipping my morning run in favor of an even earlier start. Today’s talk is at noon so timing is not a factor. I did consider resting today because my sleep was interrupted by a midnight telephone call that turned out to be a wrong number. When I got up I felt no worse for wear and headed out on what was still a reasonably cool morning. I’ve been mixing up my routes as much as I can in the morning and today I ran some selected streets until my Garmin signaled that I’d reached a mile. I ran another fifth of a mile, turned around, and retraced my route back to where I’d started. I can’t complain about my performance unless I do some speed work to improve my pace. Still, I was really surprised that I ran as slow as I did today because I felt like my form was good and my leg turnover seemed quick. You can’t argue with Garmin and Gmaps though. Either way, I’m glad I ran this morning instead of taking the easy path and resting. There’s something to be said for that.
