Why yesterday’s “easy” 3 mile run sucked so, so, SO MUCH:
* Lead legs.
(Oh hai 2.5 hours of Dailey Method and yoga on Monday…)
* First mile on a trail that ended up being SAND. Maintained regular 5k pace at heart rate I *never* feel in the first mile.
* Get off the sand and begin to run into a headwind so strong, IT LIFTED MY BRAID STRAIGHT BACK. This continued for the next mile and a half until I’d just straight up had enough.
* Turned around and sprinted back a half mile to my car just so it would be over.
Good: Maintained 5k pace in a really tough workout. Negative split, despite being exhausted from nearly the beginning of the run. Got a good little calf workout.
Bad: Well, nothing! Now that it’s over…
