Slept better last night. And I was right - the 175 from the day before was very temporary.
Woke up early enough but piddled around answering email, so I didn't leave the house until 7:30 - 7:00 was my goal. Anyway, had one of those stupid mornings where I wasted 15 minutes being mislocated while driving to a park that I have driven to often.
Started my run frustrated for being stubborn and not stopping to sort myself out resulting in a 10 mile detour.
About 6 minutes into the run, I look at my watch and wonder if I can even make the 6 minutes back to the car. I am thinking the last 2 weeks have caught up with me. But I decided to go on a bit further and try to get a couple of miles in. With a GU around mile 5, I did 6 miles out and 6 miles back. Never really felt terrible or really great either.
The trail was leaf covered and I had to really pay attention to the blazes.
And I really need to find a trail shoe that I can bond with. The running shoe is just not enough traction - don't feel like I am getting much push off.
Beautiful day with lots of runners and dogs with owners out.
