simulated run

Its hot today. 90 degrees. And I went for a run in it. Probably a really stupid thing to do, but I have a feeling that this is what its gonna be like next weekend. I started the run around 11 AM, which is what I am estimating as being the start time for my 13.1 miler next Sunday. It sucked but the shade felt a LOT better than being in the sun.

I did 3.5 miles in 29:26 for an 8:26 pace. Ill take it.

I feel so guilty during tapers. I mean, yesterday I biked a whopping 17 miles and swam 1 mile; today I ran a whopping the 3.5 miles. I am going through that, "Geeze, if that 3.5 miles hur that bad, Im gonna die next weekend!".....amazing how quickly your mind THINKS it is losing it. Oh the madness!

  1. oh taper madness ... it sucks. I know exactly what you mean about feeling guilty about not putting in the time/ distance ... and also having shitty 2-3 mi runs and thinking "HOW THE HELL AM I GOING TO RUN 10x THIS?"
