I like EASY

At least last night I did!

Last night's run - 60 minutes EASY pace. I've never been so happy to see the words EASY on the schedule. Earlier in the day at work, I had been stressed and ready to pound out some miles on the treadmill. Ready to see what kind of pace I could muster. But almost 5 hours later, when I finally got on the dreadmill, I wasn't feeling like I could push it.

60 minutes, 5.63 miles, 10:39 pace.

That was the best I could do and I'm cool with that. I started slow, pushed a little in the middle and slowed it down again.

Tomorrow's going to be a busy, busy day with the kiddos!

Good for you for getting on the treadmill and "gettin 'er done". (I know...such a stupid saying). Especially since you are now teaching classes and seem to be even busier then you once where!!!!

Welcome back to the blogger world. Sometimes it is hard, but it is always nice to hear feedback! :)

Way to stick with the run and be strong!!! You'll feel good about it this weekend and you're running ragged with the kiddos.

Easy running sure helps ease the soul, especially on a treadmill. Slow and steady has its purpose...glad you discovered that.
