A Rare Run

I couldn't overcome my urge to get in a short, slow run this morning. And it's a good thing I was thinking "short and slow"...because that's all I had. I ran 3.5 miles in 29:54 (8:32 pace). I don't know if all the riding has wiped out my legs, or if I'm actually losing some running fitness, but this was a tough run (just a few weeks ago, I ran a pretty easy 10 miles at an 8:09 pace!) But I know that, when the cycling madness ends, I'm sure my running mojo will return within a week or two.

Busy day today, so I'm out! Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Seems pretty fast to me! I turned around after 3.5 mi this morning - it was just too hot for the dog... and me!

  2. Hey Toni! If it was hot this morning (it will be later), I don't think I'd even have made it THAT far. I've been riding pretty hard lately, so the running has had to take a back seat. I miss it!
