I was dragging this morning. Last night I was up entirely too late working on a custom rom for my Toshiba Thrive tablet. Yup…. I’m a geek. ha! Anyhouser, I only got about 5 hours of sleep, making for an extremely dragging morning at work. I’d brought my running clothes in anticipation of a lunchtime run, but all morning, all I could think about was taking a nap, and I nearly did.
I decided to suck it up, dawn my running gear, and get out there regardless of my lack of sleep. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a straight run; most of my running as been the 1:30/1:00 run/walk variety for pretty much all year. I’m looking at doing a 5K in a few weeks so I wanted to get some straight running in. I elected to do two miles around the parade field. I was quite surprised with myself. I made it in 17:49, for a 8:56 pace. Wahoo. If I can keep it up for another 1.1 miles, I’ll PR by over a minute.
