Another short running week. Too many things are happening at the same time. Add the usual stress of daily life and running becomes a secondary activity sometimes. All the doping cases keep popping up everywhere. The hard work mantra is not there anymore. Greed and personal satisfaction have become the main goal.
I had a very long working day. Tired.
I ran the usual bike path route from home. From half way to the bike shop in 8:36. Then I ran easy for five minutes and increased the pace for the next 3/4 plus miles, 3:57. I was feeling exhausted. 41 minutes and 20 seconds.
From home to the bike path, out and back. Nice run. I covered the 2.88 miles in 18:45 and ran easy the rest of the course. 47 minutes and 57 seconds.
Short run on the bike path. From half way to the bike shop and back. I was feeling tired. Better back off for better days. 19 minutes and 47 seconds.
Another day off.
