Broke through the 100k for the month this morning. I was so worried about not doing it (getting up and running that is) that I kept waking up all night starting at about 2:30am, just waiting for the clock to tick over 5:30am so I could get out and do my run. Who needs solid sleep anyway. Bella was even sleeping in front of the front door this morning too, but I just chucked her on the bed with Charlie (both dogs) and shut the bedroom door.
I did the same run as Monday but this time I started in the dark. It has been so long since I have run in the morning darkness that I had forgotten how easy it was…mentally that is. Physically it was still taxing and after crawling the first 4k I travelled the next 4k in sub 6min ks. Thank goodness. I thought my legs had forgotten how to run sub 6min ks. I just hope they still remember how to run sub 5min ks.
