A Badly Needed Run - RunLog 9-17-16

This post was written for and first appeared on One Foot In Reality.


Going away for a few days, is nice and all that, but at the same time there is no place like home.

After a four hikes, one in Gorham in the last three days, I didn't bother talking about and then the three hour drive home, I was wiped. We unpacked, did some quick stuff and then I took a nap. The only reason I woke up was that I was snoring so loud that I woke myself up an hour later.

I have a small running streak going and while I was feeling tired, I wanted to get out get a short run in. So I went for an easy 3.0 mile run. I have been reading Matt Fitzgerald's 80/20 and purposely slowed down a lot.

Every time I would speed up, I purposely slowed back down. I finished well and didn't feel like crap. Although the legs were tired when I started out, they felt pretty strong by the time I was finishing. In other words, I needed the run.

Distance: 3.31
Time: 30:59
Pace: 9:22
Shoes: Inspire 11
