This morning I went on my usual 5 miler around the Reservoir. Of course, I stayed in bed for 10 minutes too long perusing the interwebs in efforts to wake myself up. When I got out there, I really went for it, or thought I went for it. Perhaps I was too cocky after I realized in my 10 miler that I am in fact capable of running a sub -8:00 minute mile. Either way, I was pretty surprised when I looked at my splits:
It’s fine, I ran slowly today. But it is interesting to note that I thought I was running “fast” (it’s all relative) when in reality, I was doing a “take it easy” pace. My body must have been feeling some sort of way. Perhaps it’s because I didn’t give it time to wake up? I hope I learn soon that giving myself extra time in the morning will really improve my quality of life. And quality of runs, probably.
Last night I got to FaceTime with MQ and my cute lil nephew Khiam. He is such a riot – always looking for something new to learn! We got play to peek-a-boo via FaceTime and he started mocking our laughing, which pretty much made my day. Nay, made my week. I’m obsessed. I tried to snap a pic of adorable face, but he wouldn’t stay still. Typical 🙂
How was your night? Did you have a good workout this morning?
