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: I have to remember to stretch after my runs. I have felt so much better this week, when I have stretched, than I did last week, when I didn't. I don't know why it is taking me so long to learn that lesson.
Comments: I really felt good this morning. Yes, the last few miles were tough, but not overwhelmingly so. And I bounced back fairly quickly after. So I'm happy. Now two easy days, then a tough, tough weekend.
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.
