much better 10

 Hoka

After a few recent runs that were not so great, I thought today would be another. Turns out it was a pretty good run. 10km at a good pace, and I felt fine running, with no need to take a bunch of rest stops, as some recent runs have gone....

lousy 6

 Hoka

the run itself was lousy, but I ran 6km at a decent pace. I was feeling lousy and uncomfortable and I kept stopping for micro-breaks. I was just off kilter and off balance.

tired 7.5

 Hoka

While originally i had been looking forward to a nice long run this morning, realistically my intentions had to change after I went paddle boarding yesterday. Additionally, in the evening I experienced some knee pain out of the blue. I had no idea what I would be able to run on Friday morning. It turns out my knee is mostly ok, but my body was so tired, especially my legs, from the paddle boarding that I just took it easy. I was resigned to just running short and then decided I should at least trudge along a little further to make it more than an average weekday run. I ended with a 7.5km run at a slowish pace -slowish but not as slow as my really slow runs.

good 12

 Brooks

good 12km run this morning. I have been feeling a bit out of synch this week, so I didnt run hard, but I ran steady and the pace was decent, a little on the slow side of decent, but decent. but it was a good run.

good 8.5

This morning was a good 8.5km run, even though the pace was a little on the slow side. The run felt good, I didnt push hard, an ran steady.

Motzash 5

 Hoka

lousy 5km run. Kept it short to 5km because of being short on time, and it was a lousy run anyway

hilly 10

 Hoka

I planned on a shorter run than recent long runs, but not as short as it ended. I decided to finally run Nehar Dan, the new road between RBS and BS that looks really good for running. I started off with the start of my regular running route in the neighborhood and then ran down to the start of Nehar Dan. I realized in advance there would be some hill running, especially on the way back from Bet Shemesh, but the amount was unexpected, and it was causing me some pains in my knee and ankles. Because of that and more because of feeling wiped out with all the steep hill climbing, I cut my run on Dan short and turned around -  i just couldnt imagine making it back if I would run all the way across as planned.

I finished my run at 10km at a decent pace but feeling wiped out.

good 6.5

 Brooks

good 6.5km run tonight after not running for a week. Was better than a normal Motzash run, likely because I am not recovering from a long Friday run as I am most weeks.... decent pace and felt pretty good

good 18

 Brooks

good 18km run. The first 3/4 of the run was really good. The last couple of kilometers was on the slow side. Despite the slow finish, the overall pace was decent.
