So I didn't get out for my 8 mile run this morning, but I did get out this early evening. The temperature change as stated before is pretty drastic. I looked everywhere for a charger for the ol Ipod and could not find one anywhere in Laramie. I ordered one online and hopefully it will be here by Friday so I can charge up for my run on Saturday. One of my upstairs neighbors was nice enough to let my borrow her Zune. She likes a lot of techno so it worked out ok.
I came out of the gate at a reasonable tempo, but after the first mile, I really pushed too hard for how I was feeling. It came back to bite me about 4 and a half miles in. I did not see as many runners as I normally do around 5:00 out running. They must have gotten the memo about me being out late and thought better of getting their runs in.
The last 3 miles really kicked my trash. All the more reason to get up and get the run in early in the day....no food to make me feel all off. But hey....I got it in....1 hr 19 min and 53 secs for 7.99 miles. I will probably not go for my 5 mile run in the morning, but will evaluate how I feel after work to see if I want to do it tomorrow night. Thanks for reading.
