Comments: A tempo run was on the schedule today, but I could tell before my body left the warm bed this morning that it would be a wasted effort. I should have just rolled over and stayed in bed. 😉
The 4 miles I ran instead were just as much a struggle as the 3 mile tempo run would have been. I simply am not in synch today and it was very apparent during my run.
I was breathing hard a mile one already and had to concentrate on my breathing pattern (that usually doesn’t happen until about mile 6 or 7). Mile 2 was just as tough, and as I was starting into mile 3 I got side pains. They accompanied me all the way back to work.
Tomorrow will be a better day. I’ll be lifting weights! :o)
