It rhymes, so it’s a good title, right?
My run sucked this morning.
It really did. I didn’t start it until 8:30 (Thursday is my current late start day) and was attempting to do a 4 mile tempo segment at 8:45-9:00/mi pace (with 2 mi warmup / cooldown, so 8 total).
2 miles into the tempo portion and I was entirely over it. I was hot and thought of two more miles at a the same effort seemed insurmountable. So I stopped.
(Now, I’m kind of doubting whether I really needed to stop, but at the time I really didn’t feel good, so I think the answer was yes.)
Now there are several factors that might account for a crappy run, the most obvious being that I am getting over being sick. AND it was 72F and felt hotter because it was humid and the sun felt relentless.
BUT ALSO? I feel like I am improving SOOO slowly for the amount of effort I am putting in, and it makes me feel kind of sad and old.
So, way too many feelings after a failed tempo run. I’m running a 5K (this one – 10 minutes from my house!) on Saturday; hope that goes better.
Best Laid Plans Academy – happy news!
Today is the live kickoff for BLPA session 1, and I’m so excited! It has been a long road putting all of the pieces together and I just hope everyone enjoys it and gets a lot out of it.
AND AND AND, I think Best Laid Plans Academy LIVE is going to happen!! Still in the process of choosing a venue, but we are thinking South FL in early November so maybe mark your planners VERY LIGHTLY in pencil. Actually maybe just use a post it note.
This event will be for anyone who wants to spend a Thursday through Saturday planning (and RELAXING – that’s also kind of the point) with me on a live planning retreat! I will be presenting the modules I developed for BLPA, but in a live format and you will be encouraged to get your planning done in real time. AHHH! Obviously I will post details when I have them.
