Wellit looks like another week of classes has come to a close. It ended just in the knick of time because I am completely beat tonight. I felt like I was go go go all week long. Workclassand school work just never end. At least I have two days to relax and decompress before next week. I actually have more planned next week than this week! Even though I am really busyI like it because it gives me something to do. I’ve pretty much been working every daybut I am making some really good money I am also doing really well in my classes so far as well. It has been a great semester so far and I am actually really proud of myself. I guess my hard work is paying off? Do you enjoy being busy or do you like to be lazy? I am a mix of both; I like to be busy during the weekbut I like to have my weekends free to run as much as I want and lay on the couch
I started my Friday off with a little tempo action…
3 mile warm up (8:01 pace)
5 mile progressive tempo (7:107:016:486:296:11)
5.31 mile cool down/easy run (7:50 pace)
Total: 13.31 miles
I was actually up well before my alarm this morning. That is pretty sad actually because it was set for 5:00. Who am I? When 4:30 rolled aroundfor some reason I was just ready to get up. Maybe because I passed out around 9 PM last night and then proceeded to sleep like a little baby? I usually wake up a few times during the nightbut last night I was OUT. I woke up feeling really good I felt great this morningbut I am starting to feel the early wake up right now. It might be an early one tonight.
I usually take Fridays as an easy day before my long runbut I decided to go ahead and do something a little longer/harder since I had an extra 30 minutes to run before class. Why not right? I’m really glad I did because it felt GOOD. It was really weird running so damn early. I was actually out the door before I normally wake up. I don’t think I saw one other runner out there for at least the first hour I was gonebut a few people started to leak out around 6. I guess they just like sleeping more than me?
My run felt really good today. I was a little sluggish at the get gobut once I started my tempo portionI started feeling really good. I’m not sure what tomorrow will hold though. Should I put off my long run until Sunday? Decisionsdecisions… My legs are a little sore right nowbut when are they not? I think I will probably wait until tomorrow to see what my legs feel like and what the weather is like. I will have to make a game time decision in the morning! I think we are suppose to get a lot of rainso Sunday might actually be a better day. We all know how much I love running in the rain…
Well it is time for me to go hang out with some friends from work. Have a good weekend everyone!
