First run since the half marathon. I went to sleep last night with plans of running 3 miles, but woke up feeling a little wrecked. After a giant cup of coffee, I finally made it out the front door around 6:15am. Thankfully, the sun had started to rise- so it wasn’t pitch black out like it will be on my longer runs.
Two miles later, I’m equal parts glad I did it and mad I didn’t sleep in. Running today was another first for me. It was the first time I got out and ran this soon after a half marathon. In the past, towards the end of my training cycle- I was only running my long runs. When I was only doing one fall half, I stopped running immediately after the race until the following spring. Even with doing two fall half marathons for the past two years- I think I took the whole week after the first one off, then dropped back to only my long runs.
Really excited that it’s looking like fall,even if it doesn’t quite feel like fall.
Oh well. Maybe next week it will cool off.
