Warm day for me today. 22 degrees. I know this is not really hot but felt warm enough. Even 80 minutes was a bit of an effort.
I liked the idea of going for just an easy 80 minutes today. At first I was going to run an easy 10 Km around the Lake but my running partner decided she wanted to start her Marathon training with a 35/37 Km. which I thought was a bit insane. So I plodded off into the streets by my lonesome..
The Easy 80 did not feel that easy.
Probably started a tad too fast….also as I often do I increase the speed once I turn for home ( speed …what speed?). Plus I run faster when I am within a couple of Kms of finishing. Not really that smart.
I tried to imagine running into the Stadium in 8 days time to the screams of the crowd. Must try to look good for the photograph.
Felt a bit heavy today….true ,no one called out ” look at the fat man” but maybe they thought it. Note to self: Pull stomach in crossing the finish line ( assuming you make it)
