It must have rained last night. The driveway and grass are wet this morning. The moisture marks the cracks on the road like sprouting spider webs.
A steady cool breeze reminds me of the lazy days on the beach sans the salt. The 4 miles easy run feels very inviting.
Not repeating yesterday’s tempo intervals, heavens no, it’s an easy day after all, I vary my strides slightly just to get a feel for the different paces, or specifically my breathing for the different paces. It feels better today.
Pacing is something I must master in the next couple of weeks. But for now, I will just go ahead and take a nap.
Have you ever had a training day that did not go well? How do you rebound from that rough patch?
