Woke feeling tired again, but not like yesterday. I slept better, but not great. Got the kids off to camp and was out the door for my run. Temp said 70F, and it was gorgeous out there. A bit hot in the sun, but delightful in the shade. Again didn't drink coffee before the run, kept it for the reward after the run.
Plan for today was 2miles @9:45 2 miles @9:15 and 2miles @9:00
Legs felt a tad sluggish at the begining, but not as sluggish as yesterday. Since I ran mostly hills, I adjusted the paces. I wanted to keep it to a recovery run, and not a hard run, and the paces I ended w worked perfectly. I forgot my water bottle, so no drinky for me for the whole 6 miles. I never felt thirsty, and I finsihed strong. I felt like I could have run another 6-10miles. HR was a tad higher than what it should have been for recovery week run, but that is because I pushed the hills to keep pace, but I never huffed and puffed, so alls good!
