It rained most of the day here so I decided I would head to the Y and get some weights in. I did chest and shoulders. i was fairly happy with the weights I lifted but definitely realized that I need more of this.
When I came home, the kids were still lounging around and watching TV, I curled up with the youngest and fell back asleep. I know, Tough day! Rain was still coming down so I opted to clean my garage a little bit, it has been driving me nuts.
I finally finished the garage and decided that this was enough procrastination and I needed to get my six miles in. As I was starting, I was thinking tempo run. During the first three miles, I would have quit running if I was not 3 miles from home. My gut was killing me for some reason and I just did not feel good. As the title says, one of those days. However, even feeling like crap, i knew I still had somewhat of a tempo run going. At about 3 1/2 miles I decided I needed to suck it up and get after it. It also helped that I had a tail wind for the last three miles. Even feeling bad i was able to get this tempo run done. My splits were 8:13, 7:55, 7:43, 7:33, 7:21, 6:58 and 6:32 for the last .31. Once I made up my mind, I knew I could do this. Running solo and waiting till the mid afternoon made me second guess myself, but was able to mentally dig through this run.
