I stayed up a little too late watching a DVD on the rise of Catherine the Great, which meant that I had a teeeeensy weeeency bit difficulty waking up early this a.m. Still, I manage to get out of bed and out the door by 5:45 a.m. Only 3 miles on tap for today, that is until I saw on my planner while I was at work that I was supposed to do 4. Oh well.
The weather was cool - about 68 degrees to 70 degrees - depending on which temperature gauge thing at the different banks. I ran up and down the inclines along Main Street again. My legs were a little tired from yesterday, but my splits were slightly better than yesterday's - probably because I wasn't running 5 miles. There's something about running slower on the road than it is on the treadmill. It's like, when I am left up to my own devices, I kinda slacked a little bit, but I enjoyed every bit of it. So, I finished 3 miles in about 35 minutes. It's ok. Not a stellar fast run, but it was an enjoyable run.
I have 9 miles for my long run this week. I am trying to work out a plan to run those 9. We'll see.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekdays.
