5.37 @ work (10:45)

22 Aug

Comments: The new Penguin shirt was ok, nothing to write home about, but also not bad. I like my MiT shirt better, maybe because it’s more flexible. – No, it is not a CoolMax 😦 –

The run overall felt good. I had side pains in the beginning, but that’s almost the norm now.

I read in an older Runner’s World magazine yesterday that the feeling of fatigue sometimes is caused by your brain sending signals to your legs (or other body parts) to slow down because they won’t be able to sustain that kind of work for a long time. Basically your brain slows you down due to self preservation.

During this run I tried to override my brain at times, making myself go a little faster, pushing a bit harder, while trying to watch my form. Going by my time it seemes to have paid off.

Tomorrow is a 6 miler on my list. Looks like I’ll be working late so I can take a long early lunch.

    Congratulations on your consistency. Sorry about the shirt–but it’s still cute!
