0 miles - 30 minutes on an eliptical at work, but a long day kept me out of my running gear. I sit here now at 9:30, contemplating whether I should do a cold, dark, boring run or save some energy for a nice trail run tomorrow.
AM - 8 miles - really nice run at Al Sabo. Deviated from my normal route and found a cool way to connect some of my favorite trails together. A route I previously thought was 6 miles ended up being 8. I'd better go back and correct several weeks worth of mileage tallies...or just not care. The latter sounds better. Held a respectable pace and felt smooth, which was a welcome change. I used my Garmin for the first time in a while, and was pleasantly suprised with what it told me. Resting the day before, finally getting my preferred trail shoes back(TrailGloves), and easing into a smooth pace proved to be a good formula. From this feedback, I think it would be proper to use the Garmin every so often for an occasional check-in, but run by feel more often. As I get more acquainted with myself, I need to be told what to do less often. Caught this catchy tune on the radio. In my typical "cornier than ethanol" fashion, I related it to distance running.
