So...I did not get out for a run this morning. I was hoping to sneak out for a lunchtime run today - but I had conference calls peppered through my schedule until 3:30pm. However, I did slip out around 4pm for what I was hoping would be a 4 mile neighborhood run.
The weather is great for running. Overcast, cool and slightly breezy. It's hard to believe that I'm wasting this wonderful running weather!
As I headed out of my neighborhood - about 3/4 of a mile into my run - my lungs were feeling a bit tight. At that point I decided to turn right and do one of my 3 mile loops instead of turning left to do a 4/5/6 or 7 mile loop. I don't want to get a relapse of this cold just as I feel I'm getting over it.
I ended up running the 3.38 miles in 34:04 - a 10:05 pace. My HR was high - 157 avg - but my mileage is down over the past two weeks and I guess I'm still fighting this bug. I can't wait to fully recover and really run again!!!
