It's always hard to follow a "good" run. Good by my terms generally means 2+ miles because I don't really feel like I've accomplished anything unless I go at least that far. Which amazes me every time I think about it, given how hard it used to be to simply run a mile. Now, I refuse to run less than that.
It's especially hard after a 5K-equivalent run. Because after I accomplish one of those, I feel like I can take on the world! If I can do it once, I can do it again! Except, I can't. That usually wipes me out for the week. Which is why this run was disappointing, because I was trying to achieve another good run (not another 3 miles, necessarily, but... more than one at least!) and I had to stop sooner than I would have liked. Not to mention the fact that I was struggling to keep a sub-13 minute mile pace. (And by "struggling to keep" I mean "I ran really really slow").
But, that's how the cookie crumbles, I guess. Still, a run is a run, and I did manage to get this one on the books.
