I thought I was going to die today. Not really, but the last four miles of the planned, and completed, ten mile run was really difficult. Hunger, tired, sore, and generally bored made for a tough run.
In truth, I faded fairly badly at the end. I even had to slow the treadmill down to 8:23 a mile for the last mile. By then I didn't really care, but it sticks in me now that I feel much better. Oh well.
But I finished the 12/10 back to back without too much damage, and am looking forward to a day off tomorrow. I think this is going to be a decent running week.
Still bothered by the Houston Marathon lottery decision. There seem to be so many other ways to get this done right, and better.
