Today is a rest day. I am glad too. I am still sore from running 2 miles on the treadmill on Monday. Running a 10 minute mile on a treadmill is a whole different sport than running a 13 minute mile outdoors. I really LOVE slow long-distance running, and basically I don't even like running a moderate pace indoors. But I am sure I would get much better at running if I spent more time trying to go faster.
I ran 3.1 miles yesterday morning - outdoors. It was lovely. It was just at sunrise, the birds were singing, the air was crisp and cool, and I felt fabulous! And I was slow. Do I care? I am not sure.
