I Must Be Getting Soft

Yesterday morning I planned to do a general aerobic run of 8-10 miles. General aerobic runs are easy miles, but they're not a recovery jog. I run them at about an 8:00 to 8:30 pace, depending on heart rate.

I set my alarm for 5:00 AM. It was pouring down rain, enough that I could hear it without getting up. I hit snooze. I got up at 5:30. I put on my running clothes. Yes, that means I got out of bed, turned on lights, and got dressed. I even put contact lenses and shoes on. I opened the door, and it was still raining. I just didn't want to go out in it, so I took off my shoes and got back into the bed and slept until 7:30 in my running clothes. What is wrong with me?

I don't ever remember wimping out of a workout that badly. But the sleep felt good!

Today, Matt and I did a "shake the legs out" easy 7 miles with 6 x 100m strides. Hopefully each of us will have an outstanding day at McKay Hollow Madness tomorrow.

Good luck at McKay. I wimped out Thursday also. It was thundering. I will run in the rain, but I draw the line with lightening. I have promised myself some Krispy Kremes after the race. I passed on a swim this morning also.
