Tired but Happy

What a week!  I'm exhausted but very happy to be home.  Yesterday when I arrived home it was cold and overcast.  I didn't want to run; I was tired and cranky.  The combination of many early mornings, combined with interrupted sleep, and long days working at the different doc's offices left me with little energy.  I figured I could skip the run since I had woken up early to workout at the hotel (weights and elliptical) but it was not an intense workout by any means.   Then I started to feel guilty that I wasn't going to make my weekly mileage and get a run done before this weekends 20.  So after 30 minutes of sulking around the house I changed into some running clothes in hopes to motivate myself.  Then that caused my husband to feel like he should do something :) so then I could not go!  He run's significantly less than I do and because of this when he gets ready to go for a run this always motivates me to get out the door.  

I had 9 miles with 7 at tempo to do.  I told myself to see how I felt and do as much as I could no pressure.  There was some intense wind but it was at my back on the way out.  On the way back it was painful but gave me a much more intense workout (and motivation to get home sooner since it was freezing!)  I'm happy to report I hit my goal pace for every mile but 1!!!  The only reason I think the 1 mile was off (and by 6 seconds average) was because I stopped for water and garmy took awhile to get back to normal pacing. 

I'm sore today after doing arm weights for the first time in weeks and my legs are tired (but good tired).  I'll be taking it easy before this training cycle's first 20 mile run tomorrow.

Nice job with the late run. It's always hard to get that in after a long work day. Good luck on your 20 this weekend.
