Today I forced myself out of bed early so I could get in a run before my 9:30 class. The sun came up about halfway through my run; now thats what this college student calls early!
Here's the numbers:
3:31 (0.51 miles)
Average pace: 7:20/mile
Average heart rate: 165
My legs were feeling yesterday's bike ride early in the run, but they loosened up towards the end as the numbers suggest. I was holding back a little bit early on, so my heart rate was a little lower than usual.
Saturday I'm planning to run with Todd's Road Stumblers for the first time since I got injured (early September). It'll be great to see everybody again!
Thats all I got today, so I'll leave you with an appropriate quote:
"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or gazelle - when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."
