This morning I ran about 5K – 12.5 laps at the track. I felt slow and it seemed difficult to run. I mean, I could have gone out and jogged but actually running was a big challenge. I ran all the way without a break and I put a lot of effort into it, but that is the problem – it took a lot of effort. I can't be feeling this way on Sunday when I have to race and expect to go out and run faster than an 8-minute mile average.
I don't even know why I care sometimes. Today was difficult work.
