A LOT Better Second Run - RunLog 12-11-15

After this morning's muddy fiasco and a day getting ready for next week at work - finals week, I wanted, no I needed another run after I got done work.

So I let TheWife I would be going to the gym (she is understanding) and beating up the treadmill or having it abuse me.

I wasn't sure what kind of workout I would end up doing, since we are expecting great weather for December this weekend, so it would be nice to get a long run done, so I didn't want to do a crazy-ass treadmill workout, but I still wanted to run a little quicker than usual.

No, it wasn't a super-hard progression run, but I ran comfortably and in control the entire time. Although by the last half, I had to really focus on running and breathing, it was getting harder to keep up the pace, but I made it to the full 4.0 miles.

I don't know where the dips come from, unless it is when I lengthen out my stride at the end of interval, which causes a slower cadence??? Not sure, something to think about.

Now that I got the N1's figured out again, boy they are comfortable and work great. No shoe issues and I was able to just run - all I want from my shoes.

A much better run than I had this morning and it did feel good to work up a good sweat and do more than just slog along. I am a bit meechy about running faster outside when it is colder out. I don't want to take a chance on pulling the hammies anymore than they are.

All I know is that I am glad that I did go ahead and stop at the gym and get this one in.
