The whole idea of easy runs is to run easy. But somehow I feel lame when I run over 9 minute miles, despite that it was the goal.
Still, I ran 7 easy miles today. Yesterday I had an awesome 6.2 run, averaging 8:07/mile. And I felt like I could’ve gone for longer.
It’s weird how one day a pace can feel easy and another damn near impossible.
Even though today’s slow easy run didn’t feel so easy, it ended with a grin.
