good 7

 Hoka

Today was going to be weird because it is post-Yom Kippur, and also post a minor injury (smashed a toe the other day and it was very painful but mostly, not completely, healed). I figured a long run would be too unrealistic and also risky, but I also didnt want a basic 6km. So I ran 7km instead. And it was at a significantly better pace than expected.

tough 11

 Hoka

This morning's run was a good run but it was tough. 11km and it felt like a struggle throughout, even though overall it was a good pace. Since I started running again this week post-covid I have yet to find a groove and it always feels like a struggle...

slow 6km run tonight after the holiday finished. 2 days of eating and sitting in shul, a low 6km is the best I could expect

back to 6.5

 Brooks

first run in 11 days or so. After my last run my corona test came back positive so I had to be in quarantine for 10 days. While I was feeling fine, I still could not go out and run due to the required quarantine. Now that I am allowed out, I got out this morning for a run, unsure of what it would be like - would covid have affected me in some way that I was unaware of while sitting at home? would ten days of sitting at home have affected me?

So I went out with no expectations but I felt fine. Had a good 6.5km run at a good pace.

BH covid seems to have come and gone for me personally with little to no lasting effects.

lost 15

 Hoka

I went out feeling good thinking I would do my 18-20km route As I was at the top of Gimmel approaching 9km, in advance of turning left down to the 375 and Netiv HaLamed Hei, I decided to turn right instead, and run down the bridge back to Aleph, even though it would mean a significantly shorter run - and if I would want to I could extend after that While running through Gimmel, where I really dont know my way around well enough, I got lost, even though I stopped a couple of times to look at Google Maps to get an idea of where I should be running. When I noticed that I was right where I had begun, at the edge of Gimmel with the ability to turn left down to 375, I realized I was not going to be running that way. I decided to run back the regular way, not the long way or the short way I was going to try. I ended up running 15km at a good pace.

hot 8

 Hoka

good 8km run at a good pace. I got a bit of a late start but when I went out there was still a slightly cool breeze so I was pleasantly surprised, but it heated up quickly and the breeze mostly disappeared, so it was a hot run. Had a good pace but it was tough

jarring 8

 Hoka

good 8km run at a good pace but it felt jarring. Every step was rough. It was not a smooth run, but overall it was good.

tough 6

 Brooks

6km at a slowish pace. I almost gave up immediately as everything just felt bad as I started. I knew it wouldnt be a great run, tired from a bad night and muscles that felt sore from my fast run on Friday. I pushed to keep going and felt a little bit as I got into a groove, but I figured to just keep it short at 5km. As I approached 4km I decided to go to 6.

good 6.5

 Hoka

I didnt run all week due to feeling tired and worn out, probably partly because of the heat. I even went out to run one morning and just decided I couldnt, so then decided to take the week off and rest my body. I went out this morning for a short run and ran 6.5km. It was very hot but I had a good run at a good pace.

solid 6.5

 Brooks

had a solid 6.5km run this morning at a better than expected pace. I wasnt trying for anything more than a relaxed pace, easy run today. It was a solid run.
