Tired pre-run today. Was a beast today at work, going 90mph. It was kind of like one of those games where there are different lanes where some monster (plant zombies, angry chickens, battle bears, etc) are coming at you, and you have to keep shooting at them to knock them dwn before they get to you and eat you up. My guns were blazing. Stayin alive.
But I was tired after work.
Took a nap after dinner (leftovers from a P.F. Chang's work-team holiday dinner... mmm...), and it was 40 min til closing time at the fitness room. My legs were a bit sore-ish (not that they're consistently sore, it just goes through phases), and I was soo tired, but I don't want only 1 day out of the past 5 with running, and since I was already feeling my fitness decline a bit. So I changed and dragged myself to the fitness room, thinking that I could at least manage 3 or 4 miles... just get something to keep the fire burning and to not lose it.
It was a loooong first 4 miles. Dragged on and on. Maybe b/c I was so tired. Never really perked up. Had to start really slowly b/c my legs were not used to moving fast, but it got better after a mile. Some progression the rest of the time.
4.8 in 39:26, 8:13 ave. (about BQ pace... 8:12) 72 degrees in the gym.\
Splits> 8:34, 8:26, 8:17, 8:04, 6:04 for 0.8.
