Today, truly spectacularly bad weather coupled with a very nice cuddle with Deneb at nap time threatened to derail my running plans.
Throw in me feeling overly tired from a couple of tougher days of training Wednesday and Thursday, Jackson having decided to eat something that didn't agree with his lower GI (resulting in my being awakened to a panting, needing relief dog 4x last night), and a pretty strong desire to just chill and watch a movie and I had decided to bag my workout entirely before even sitting down for lunch.
But something changed while I lay there with a slowly drifting off to sleep Bean. I was thinking about the Space Coast Marathon. I was thinking that I have a legit shot at a top 10 placing (depending on the folks who show up and my form). The rain stopped.
It's still overcast. It's cool. Perfect weather for a run. Too bad today was marked "Recovery".
In deference to my general malaise on the morning I took 15 minutes out of my scheduled workout and kept it out - toward the end of my run I was feeling really good and wanted to do more...
Thanks for reading and be safe out there,
