To Run another day....

Today didn't work out. My plans went kaput! I wanted an 18 miler of roads. What I got was a weak 12 miler. I picked up my running buddies...Larry and Clyde, (they are dogs). They can be such a pain! Especially Clyde as he darts and even stops in front of me making me have to stop or leap, or swerve, but I still like their company.
I was reminded today of the Bass Pro Marathon I ran last November because I felt the exact same way...I could not get going! I tried. It just was not my day! I actually had to walk some towards the end? Not the least bit encouraging! However, I have decided to try it again tomorrow. I will get out earlier, try to sneak by Larry and Clyde (they got in 12 miles today, too!) and hope I can get the long run in at a decent pace. The heat and humidity is back but that is not an excuse, I simply had no energy today. I live to run another day, though!!
Totals-12.25 miles/ 2:25:00/ 11:50's-Peace!

I bet those dogs will be sound asleep tomorrow! We all have days like that, but 12 miles is still very far. I think sometimes when we are marathon training we forget that. I hope you next long one is a breeze!

Eh, every run can't be great. At least you still got 12 miles. Next time will be better.

4 miles 4 kids

    So a perfect day to race! 60's, overcast, breezy. The field was small and club racers were sparse!   I was probably the only guy i...
