I got outside to run.
It is afterall, a heat wave when you reach over 20 degrees in the heart of February (for Illinois at least). It was overcast all morning, but the moment I stepped out the front door, the sun popped out and stayed with me for 7 miles.
I wore my Garmin for the first time in months... to my displeasure. I need to start paying attention to my pace again, but it somewhat strips the joy away from my run. With each mile, the watch beeps and almost always tells me, "Not fast enough". I'm trudging right now, like I'm running in snowboots. I miss that floating feeling in my stride. But the only way to get it back is to get serious about my training. (My next 'A' race is May 4 at Lincoln, NE) I need to get back to intervals and tempo runs, but it's depressing to actually face the Garmin and see the proof.
The time is now.
