Thursday workout: 6-7 mile run, 3-3.5 of which were tempo
This was the first tempo run I’ve done since sometime in April, and thus the first time I really pushed myself in a run. It was also the first time I had to put gloves on to run this year:
I wish I could say it felt awesome, but frankly, it was just downright hard (which I guess is the point of a tempo run). I just kept my eyes focused on something ahead and kept yelling at myself to keep on pushing.
A half mile into my tempo run, this happened:
Stupid Garmin, It just can’t hold a charge anymore! At least this time it didn’t go crazy on me and start obnoxiously beeping for 20 minutes straight like last time! I was seriously ready to throw it in the lake when that happened last time with the beeping!
So anyway, I have no idea how fast I ran, but all I know is that it felt subjectively hard. I’m hoping to make it 16 this weekend. We’ll see…
Speaking of this weekend, I cannot tell how excited I am to have no plans or commitments! I am so excited to just have a leisurely two days to catch up on things at my own pace.
Tonight, right before I sat down to write this, I noticed that the skyline looked kinda cool with the clouds rolling across the sky, so of course I grabbed my camera and took a few pics, even though I’ve taken pictures of this same view millions of times. Anyway, here they are:
Alright, I can barely keep my eyes open. Good night all.
