So, I’m in the middle of marathon training and I have had some BAD runs. What makes a run bad to me? A. Not hitting goal times B. Feeling horrible throughout the run C. Feeling down or in a running funk. Well, I’ve had a few too many of these runs lately.
Last week’s track workout included 2 x 1200m and 4 x 800m. I was getting over a cold and just could not get anywhere near the goal times. I even shortened 2 of the 800s to 400s. Bad run!
This past Tuesday, I set out for a tempo run and couldn’t manage one mile at tempo pace. It was hot and humid and I was tired. Bad run!
But alas, this 20 miler came along and many of the miles were at goal pace (under 9:00 minute miles) and I had some gas left in the tank at the end! Good run!!!!
Maybe my new shirt from Janae at http://www.hungryrunnergirl.com helped me get through this one. She is so speedy and an awesome person. ☺️
Happy Saturday and I hope you have a good run this weekend!
Last really good run? This 20 miler!
Favorite treat after a long run? A big iced coffee and an egg sandwich (or a donut) 😉
