Lately. I’ve been taking two rest days after my long run, but this week, for a bunch of reasons, it didn’t really work out. I’m a slow recoverer (is that even a word?), and had 12k on my schedule for tonight. I found that number to be really overwhelming, so I told myself to just get out there, take it easy and do what I could do. Out of all my runs planned this week, this one was the least important.
So that’s what I did. I really wasn’t feeling it 4k in, just before Pottery Road hill. Somehow I convinced myself to run up that damn thing. Because I did that, I gave myself permission to shorten the route home a bit. In the end, I was slower and shorter than I hoped, but it’s another run in the bank.
I can see the finish line.
The run: 10k in 1:14:23
