Runday Bloody Runday

Sunday was by no means a good running day. Even though I got in 5.4 miles, it was rather a pathetic attempt and scampering with my feet. My intention was to run at least 10 miles to get in a good long run and help with my overall aerobic fitness. It probably didn't help that I wasn't the best eater over the weekend… I think I was a little malnurished and had a few Grolsch to celebrate the football games

Sunday was such a crappy run. I went from wanting to run 10 miles, to 8.8 miles, to barely finishing 2 laps at Lakeshore. Then I went to Concord Park on my way home after getting some Powerade, thinking it would help. 2 minutes into my run and I had to stop… ugh

SO today I wasn't sure what I would do. After all, it is my regular speed day. Well, to change things up, I took a different route. Actually a harder route than normal because there is a big hill right at the 1.1 mile mark. Sure enough, it wasn't all that bad.

Much better and I went up the Lake Loudon hill much faster (my preception) than ever before. It wasn't the fastest overall day, but it was pretty darn good
