I had an OK run for the first two & a half laps, & then I lost steam after that. I'm not going to make excuses, but I'm sure that my going to bed at 2 am probably didn't help any when I went out to run this morning only 6 1/2 hours later. ;-) Also, I need to pop something in my mouth about an hour to a half-hour before my runs for some extra fuel (i.e., to replenish my glycogen stores), but lately can't seem to get up early enough to do that! ;-)
It started out overcast & windy, whiched help me keep pace fairly well for about 2 1/2 laps, but then as the heat & humidity index started to climb, I began to "melt" with the sun's increasing intensity. ;-)
It was a fairly uneventful & somewhat lackluster run, & I was still surprised at how relatively slow I ran, even despite my lack of sleep & the muggy weather. Normally, I'm able to overcome these factors, & still pump out a fairly decent run closer to the 31 minute mark. (Today's run was a dog-slow 32:26! I did my usual 4 laps around the lake, or 2.96 miles, which is a 10:57 pace. Yikes!) My fatigue on the last lap really killed my pace; I just didn't have anything left & couldn't even do my usual closing sprint. Oh well, it was a run. It's over. Tomorrow's a new day.
