Nothing quite like taking a nap, waking up 30min before I have to leave for work and trying to cram in a run.
It's times like these that I realize the difference between running off and on for years and running consistently/training. Most of these past 5 years I would have stayed home.
Sometimes I wonder how much good some of my "filler" runs do. I have tried to steadily increase my minimum run distance and I now have it set around 3 miles, but still, today's run felt terrible. I was half asleep most of the way. It was hot. And well, I guess I am still choosing to follow the Run Faster theme that the most important contributer to aerobic fitness/distance running is high running volume.
This post/day reiterates the reason for the name of this blog. Many days its a success just to get out there and try and stick with the running plan.
