Today’s 8 miles easy (9:00 to 9:45) was a lot harder than I could imagined (surprised might be a better word as I usually don’t fret over the schedule).
The easy pace run supposed to provide a relief and an opportunity for my body to recover. Oh boy, it did not feel that way. Especially the last two miles, I had to exercise mental toughness just to finish the run.
Not complaining. I knew this is how my training plan is designed. Just curious how will the rest of the week play out.
