Good morning and Happy Thursday all 🙂
I know all my friends on the east coast are almost to the afternoon by this point, so I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far as well, and I am a bit jealous that you’re almost half way done with your work day. . . but that’s neither here nor there :).
Zach and I had a blast at the game last night
I plan to have a full review later this afternoon, it was actually a pretty cool experience.
But, thanks to the game, Zach and I were in bed quite a bit after our normal bed time, so I was very thankful for my late start morning when my alarm went off.
At 745, I crawled out of my comfy bed and hit the gym for a very easy recovery run to loosen them up after a good strength day and tough hill workout the day before
Workout of the Day: 4 + miles on the treadmill: recovery
Today’s run stayed between 6.1-6.3 speeds for the most part, going up to 6.5 by the end.
I know this isn’t very fast by a many peoples standards, but for me it was very nice to just zone out and move the legs this morning. I didn’t want anything tough, and even when I got bored and wanted to speed it up, my smart half told me to keep it under control and save the tank for a long run this weekend.
Overall — I think the easy run was the perfect start to the AM :).
And now — it’s about time to head to work. Which normally I would be a little grumpy about — but I had an experience last night at the game that was pretty humbling, and reminded me exactly why I do what I do. . . so I think today I’ll grab my coffee, and put a smile on my face as I head to work.
Question of the Day: Does anyone else struggle with keeping pace sometimes on easy runs? Or just work outs that are meant to be easier in general?
