Looks like some dreams really do come true
Can't wait to begin my love affair with these bad boys
This morning I had a 22 miler on the schedule. Alarm was set for 5, but I didn't wake up until 6 and was out of the house by 6:40. Felt like it took about 6 miles for my body to even wake up. Goal for the morning was to take the first half easy, then the second at MP. But my legs told me otherwise today and my head wasn't in the game. I just wasn't feeling it today, and by mile 11 I decided to just run without paying attention to pace.
Ended up clocking 21 miles with 7:38 average pace. Sometimes I have all the energy in the world to crank out a balls-to-the-walls run, and then there are other times like today where I feel tired and just want to deviate from my plan and just run to run. Today I took a leisurely pace where I jumped in the lake a few times when I got hot, took as many water breaks as possible and lingered a few times for a rest, and just let my legs go without concern of pace.
Either way, I still clocked 21 miles. And got me some new kicks. Great start to my 4 day weekend from work.
