I was not motivated to run hard this AM. I still got up at 5:05, moped around, showed the dumb cat where her food was, got dressed, drank coffee and went outside. Luckily I have about 15-20 mins of going from 8 min to 7 min miles in order to change my attitude. It wasn't working. I tried and started running hard, my HR at 175 but that lasted for about 10 mins before I started thinking about how Greg Remaly would probably just stop and return to his couch and cookies. I decided to enjoy the sun and the fact that I was 30 mins from home and proceeded to run home easy. I guess I'm either 1) tired 2) pooped 3) not recovered from the weekend.
Keeping the reminder I from Scott Fairchild on Friday about Macca ranting about the 4th discipline (recovery) - I went home, had some eggs and rode to work. I'll just putter home tonight and will hop in the pool tomorrow ready to wreak havoc on the slow lane!
I also now have some good feedback from Tyler on Oceanside: 'It sucked and there was a whale in the harbor during the race, I'll never do it again'. I'm psyched now.
