Today was hard, there is no getting around it. I didn't want to get out of bed, I didn't want to face another day in the swamp like weather we have here in NC. I didn't want to lace up and rack up miles. Today was a recovery day, easy 45 min run. Even though it was marked as an easy run, it was anything but. Yesterday run drained everything I had. It was 3, 8 min sprints that I averaged 1.06 miles per. Plus 30 additional mins of easy pace running. It was the most humid and hottest run yet. I was able to push myself out the door and get the run in. I kept telling myself that not every run is pretty, not every run can be well rested. The hard runs will teach you more, learning to run on fatigue prepares you for the last few miles of the half marathon when you have nothing left to give. So far I have 15 miles this week, and with two runs left I think I will get an addtional 15. I hope with enough rest I will be able to slay tomorrows run of 4x5min pickups. But right now all I want to do is nap, and eat.
