I went out slightly earlier today and hit the streets at 5:15am and it was dark. Properly dark. No predawn light on the horizon. So for half of my run today I was running by torch (flash) light.
It was damp, humid and 70F but I managed to squeeze in the 8.3 miles I had planned. My legs were heavy and so were my shoes. It felt like I was dragging myself along. My pace was 8:23 and I had nothing in the tank for a sprint home either. Mind you, I hadn’t eaten anything and didn’t take water on the run with me so I didn’t really give myself much of a chance.
Job done and now to enjoy a day and a half before I run again. 🙂
Note: the title here is borrowed from a track by a-ha which I am going to have to listen to now.
