A bad run is usually followed by a good run. 

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) 😉
