I wasn’t all that pleased with today’s run. I had a bad attitude beforehand. It was a group run with the training group, and it was godawful cold. I almost skipped it, but hoped the weather would be better than forecast. It wasn’t, and I was just not into it. I finished up the last 5 miles on the Y treadmill before yoga class just to feel slightly less miserable. I was very tempted to spend all of yoga in child’s pose. Something about 15 mph wind in 19 degrees (so it felt like mid-single digits) wears me out.
Luckily my son is cooking burgers tonight, so I don’t have to do anything except whine and groan on the sofa tonight.
This week I have a lot of miles again, but I’m not joining the running group for my long run. I have a fast finish 18 miler next Sunday, and I need to be in control of the pacing for that. I have to admit, today I was fantasizing a little about dropping down to the half marathon. I won’t do it, but I was so over the long run today before it started. It happens, or so I’ve heard from more experienced runners.
