So I’ve had to switch the training schedule (for the week only) around a bit thanks to work hours and just being tired. As long as the miles get done, right?
This morning I set out for my 8 mile run after a breakfast of a Luna protein bar and RedBull light. Decided to go along the Hudson on this nice foggy morning. And so selected a novelization of The Scottish Play for my listening. It was actually a really good match.
And the run went fantastically. Like, I kept trying to slow myself down, but that never happened. Actually the opposite – it seemed like the more I tried to slow down, the more I sped up.
8 miles went by like it was nothing!!
And while part of me wishes all my runs could be like that, I know that the tough ones are really the ones the stretch me and help me to grow. And the nice, easy-feeling ones like this are the icing.
