July 3

Total time: 25 minutes
Total distance: 1.95 miles

Today's run, well, kind of sucked. I'm not entirely sure what it was I had hoped to accomplish, but it became apparent that it was not going to be a long run sort of day. Like I'd been doing with my short runs ("you have twelves minutes, go run a mile"), I kind of gave myself a time limit and a distance goal all wrapped up into one. Based on my past history, 25 minutes should have given me just slightly over 2 miles, and that seemed like an acceptable distance.

But I was going a lot slower than I thought, struggling like I had during the 5K on Saturday, and when I stopped my watch and plugged in my UP band, I had fallen short of that 2 mile goal. In fact, my pace was almost a full minute slower than it had been recently - which is fine, I guess, but I was a little disappointed with myself. I just reminded myself that everyone has bad nights and trudged home, incredibly grumpy.
