It all started on Tuesday morning. I got ready to run and gave myself the standard 5 minute intermission to see if I needed to
1.68 miles, 11:09 pace (7:51 first mile, 16:00 second mile)
5 miles, 7:35 pace
With Tuesday only a pot cloud of a memory, today (Wednesday) I was positive that I was going to be able to power through only having ran 7 hours before. The first miles were ROUGH, a lot rougher than they should have been. I stopped no fewer than 4 times during (stoplight, untied shoe, wait for bowels to un-liquefy, another stoplight) but I got them done. Goal was a 7 mile marathon pace run, and I managed 6 miles at 7:18 pace. After Tuesday’s debacle, I’ll take it.
