You know, running is dumb.
My plan for this week was to just take it easy. I wanted to run a solid effort, but not really push it. Sort of a quasi-tempo run. And, this is what I did. I just stayed relaxed and rolled along. I felt pretty good. It was a good effort, and not nearly as hard as last week. I finished strong and...well, I was only 4 seconds slower than last week. HUH? Running is dumb.
