slow 9

it was supposed to rain today and get cold, but besides for some light rains in the early morning, the weather has been pretty decent. With a break in my work day, I decided to take advantage and get a run in before the storm hits.

Besides for some strong headwinds that made running difficult at some points, the weather was overall pretty good. a mix of cloudiness and sun and good cool temperatures. The wind was tough but everything else was great. My legs felt a bit tired but I slogged through it and kept pushing. Even though I had planned for a 5km run, I pushed myself to 9km.

good 9

Today is a very warm day, but I wanted to get another run ni before the rain and cold returns, so I went out for an early run before it would get too warm. I ran a slightly altered course After the initial cycle around Kishon, I ran up the first section fo the bridge to Gimmel and then down into the ravine with construction because I needed a pit stop in the port-a-potty there. After that i ran up Hayarqon through the beautiful new park and then up to Hayarden, across to Refaim, and then turned and ran back home to finish at 9km.

I felt pretty good and strong, though my pace was average slow.

funky 5

That was a lousy run. good weather but slow and lethargic and unfocused. I forced myself to not quit until I hit 5km, but I was ready to stop earlier.

I feel like I am in a funk. I am forcing myself to go out and run rather than taking every opportunity possible. During the run I am ready to cut it short, rather than looking for how I can get a little bit more. I don't know what caused this, nor how I will get out of it, but it isn't the end of the world. These things happen.

great 7.5

after two weeks of no running, it was great to be out there again.

It started off with a bad cold that made me sore and have bad headaches and I just couldnt run for a few days. After that there was some bad weather, a busy schedule and some laziness, along with the pattern of no running building on itself, and it turned into two weeks of no running.

So, this morning I went out for a run, not knowing how it would work out considering the two week break. I figured I would keep it short, at about 4-5km, and I figured it would be slow. When I got out there, I felt great. My legs were itching to go. I had a fast run and just felt great and ran to 7.5km. I was still feeling fine and could have kept going but did not want to push it on my first day back..

bleh 4

after spending the morning at a family simcha and eating a nice breakfast, my run shortly after that was lousy. I felt so heavy and bloated, I just couldn't run. I ditched it at an extremely slow 4.5km..
