After two days of rest, I was ready to hit the road again. Monday I was recovering from a night of little sleep and lots of time in the bathroom. Yesterday was just a really busy day and my schedule made exercise tough (plus I thought a second day of rest couldn’t hurt).
Last night as Aaron and I were laying in bed, he asked how far I was going to run today. I told him I was just going to head out and see how I felt. I knew it could go either way – I would either feel really tired and cut it short, or I could feel rejuvenated from two days of rest. Luckily, it was the latter!
In addition to not knowing how I was going to feel, the trail I normally run is closed July 18-August 24th, so I had to kind of ing it on my route. I ran along the river on a trail I haven’t run since the fall.
I forgot how much I loved the trail. It is a great trail to run in the summer because it was pretty much completely shaded. I also got to see some cute puppies playing in the river.
I wound up covering 4.62 miles in 43 minutes for a 9:18 pace.
