Yep, today I could feel it. My legs were a little bit tight from last night’s speed work but I got in my 5 miles.
I kind of tried to talk myself into only doing 3 but I love how my Brain and my Legs argue. I swear it is like they are a couple of tweens being stubborn. My Legs were like, “Come on, you can do just 3. Tomorrow is supposed to be a 3 miler, you can trade…just turn around now. 5 is too much today.” And my Brain was like, “Dude, Legs. I know you man…your gonna talk me out of 5 tomorrow and I am here now. I’m already going. I’m just going to go to the end of this street.” Legs: “For crying out loud Brain! If you go to the end of this street by the time you turn around it will be 4 miles once we get home! Why don’t you just go into daydream mode and relax?” Brain: “LEGS! NO! We are not TURNING! 5 it is!!!.” Whew…that is what is happening. The Brain vs. Legs battle. Today the Brain won.
5 Miles/44 min/ 8:50 pace
If today had been race day I’m not sure it would have ended in a sub 2. We all have good run days and bad run days. When a bad run day happens on a race day, well that plain stinks. I guess that is what next time is for. Right?
Thanks to all of you who left me tidbits of info about Fat vs. Muscle! I feel much, much better now! =)
Also, today after my 5 mile run I took Lazy Dog on a nice 3 mile walk with Jessica. I passed by an Antique shop and had to stop to snap this picture:
