I can not believe how tired I am today. This morning was my nephew, Evan's kindergarten graduation. His school is about 40 minutes away from my house in no traffic, so I had to get up early to get my 9 mile run in, get the kids ready, and head to Worcester, Massachusetts.
The 9 mile run was tough. It was a General Aerobic run with 10x100m strides at the end. Normally, this would be easy, but today I am dragging. I keep reminding myself on my runs that if I feel good, then I am not working hard enough. As long as I can hit my runs then I know I am doing something right.
Tomorrow, I have 14 on the schedule. I think I am headed to the rail trail. The hills these past few runs have been killing me. I love running hills but the added mileage isn't making the hills as easy as they used to be.
Next week I will be running my annual 4th of July Race. I am getting excited. I am going to work on tweaking my schedule for next week so that I am semi-rested for the race so that I can pull out a PR hopefully.
