I need to have a good week of running after the personal issue last week cut back on my mileage somewhat, so I set out for a 12 mile run in 7:30 a mile. Nope.
I got to mile 9 and just didn't have the oomph left to push through, so the run was nine miles in 7:30 a mile. Not bad, but not goal distance, either. An hour or so after finishing I was wishing I had run further since I was feeling good, but so be it.
I did manage to finish some planning for terrific vacations this fall, though. At least something went right. Of course, too much vacation during marathon training season will be less than positive. Sigh.
