Friday was a total bust. Since I was off work and had nothing planned to do for the day, I really have no good excuse. So, I will refrain from some long, drawn out story full of sad excuses that justify my stationary position on the sofa all day long.
But, after two days off I had NO excuse this morning but to get up and go. So I got up and went. It was a muggy 82 degrees outside that felt more like 100. But, I knocked out a slow and steady 5 mile run around the neighborhood. I feel confident that if I had made it to the park, I would have run a little further. But, the elevation in my neighborhood is much more intense than the relatively flat park.
Saturday long runs should be up to about 8 miles right now, so I slacking just a little. However, I completed 8 miles three weeks ago, followed by 2 weekends of no long runs. So, I’m not beating myself up over this at all. I feel accomplished.
We are off to an overnight camping trip at Krause Springs. Are you doing anything fun for the long weekend?
