I planned to get up early and be out running by 8:00am at the latest. Shoo apparently had different plans and kept waking up during the night (his illness has turned into nasal congestion, sigh). When he woke me up at 5:21 am for what felt like the millionth time, I realized I was not going to be out running early. I finally pulled myself out of bed at 8, ate breakfast, and drank my coffee.
Beer Geek needed to get a haircut and the place opened at 9:00 am, so he went there and I waited until he returned to go out for my run. It was in the mid-70s and what felt like 100% humidity when I headed out. The first mile felt fine, so I decided to try some quarter mile repeats. The first one went fine (1:55) with a slow jog after. The second went ok (1:59) with a slow jog after as well. The third one was a horrid failure. About .1 of a mile in, my body just said no way. I had about 3.5 miles left at that point and I literally ran from corner to corner, telling myself I had to make it to each corner.
Eventually, I did manage to finish my hour of running (my ultimate goal) and had finished 6.43 miles. By the time I got home, I’d run 1:01:51 and 6.65 miles. I think this was one of those runs where I would have really benefitted from one of the handheld systems. But, yay, only 5.25 miles left for tomorrow. LOL
We leave for Maine in less than a week and I have about 5,000 things to do. Losing all of last week has me in a bit of a time crunch. Apologies in advance if I don’t comment as much this week. On the WooHoo! side of things, though, we found out yesterday that the house we rented for the week has WiFi. ;o)
