Tomorrow: 6 miles pace

 

 

 

Comments: OK, I took an unexpected day off.  For the third day in a row, I woke up in a funk, and I decided an extra day off would do me more good than a run.  I'll do today's run tomorrow, and then, depending on how I feel, I may make up the off day later this week, or I may just let it go.

Comments: After yesterday's long run, I had planned to run easy today.  But I felt good, and it was a nice morning, so I got out and ran 9 miles at just under my 10 minute pace.  It was hard, but it felt good!  I'm dedicating this morning's run to Paula Radcliffe, who also finished even though she didn't feel like it.
