I didn’t sleep last night, nor did I feel all that well today. It’s also a day off work, my last day if I’m being specific before heading back. It was one of those days I just knew I’d be better off laying around all day but that’s the funny thing about setting an intention – you can’t make excuses.
I was so slow, my splits were as bad as they’ve ever been. I knew it was going to be a bad day from the start considering I’ve had plenty of 3 to 5 mile runs in the 40 days thus far that have been around a 10 minute pace of less. It’s almost as if someone would have to work to steadily decrease each mile. Mile six a group of kids rolled up on me asking about my airpods so I moved a bit quicker 😂.
It was also raining and I was pretty wet. I started to rub out a pretty gnarly blister around mile 7. All in all it was just one of those days where you don’t feel it and I paid the price. I’m thinking I’ll try again for 13.1 good miles next weekend or the weekend after. We’ll see.
Total Miles: 102.40 in 40 days.
