What a glorious day to run!
I work 80% (well, I get payed 80% but that’s another topic…). So, my job, besides being awesome, gives me a lot of freedom. For example to do my long run on Friday instead of Saturday because of how fantastic the weather is.
My favorite part of the park trail is about 5 to 6 miles away from home, that’s why I decided to out-and-back route, totaling 12 miles. So far so good. But I also decided to take the iPod, first time in ages. I’m no longer used to running with music. It made disregard everything my body was telling me and I ran way too fast. Till the last 3 miles — falling apart badly.
Anyway, here we go. Sorta time trial for my next goal race, the winter race series 20k in February. Last year I ran it in 1 h 48 min. Today I ran 20k in 1 h 55 min (excluding picture breaks). I do have some work cut out but last year’s time is not completely out of reach.
