It was Sunday - supposed to be race day. But as I said yesterday, I couldn't find a 10K close to home, so I ran a simulated 10K Saturday, and slipped in a 45 minute tempo run yesterday instead of taking rest days Friday and Saturday.
I felt pretty good when I started. By halfway in I could tell that it had been a long week! I still got 4.55 miles in, but the last two miles were tough - especially on uphills - regardless how minuscule they were. I felt myself degrading as I got closer to the end of the run, even breaking out in a walk a couple of times. But - I finished my time on the trails and took a well deserved nap when I got home!
