This morning I did not want to get out of bed. I woke up with my alarm, didn't feel tired, but I did feel lazy.
'Tomorrow is my rest day, I could just run tomorrow and have today as a rest day.' Or 'I could always run this afternoon.' I thought about it for a little bit, then realised that I feel so much better after completing a run. They always say, you never regret the workout you did, but always regret the workout you didn't do. So true.
A tempo was on the cards for this morning. According to my mate, Hal, this was going to be about a 10 minute easy run, then working up to tempo pace, then a 5 to 10 minute easy run, for 40 minutes. It started off really well, but I think I need to work on my pacing. I ended up a little too fast.
Mile 1: 9:34
Mile 2: 8:20
Mile 3: 8:06
Mile 4: 8:10
Last 0.67: 8:54
(I'll update these when I get my watch, I think this was it, average pace is 8:34min/mile.)
I am extremely happy with this run, even if it was a touch fast. After not wanting to get out there I ended up doing a great job! Pat on the back for me!
Now to relax at the beach, watching Da Hui Backdoor Shootout comp!
