Jeff’s Daily Post – Maryland 6.2 – Update – 5 in the afternoon too!
I’m back home in Maryland and what a beautiful Friday (sunny and 65). I didn’t run yesterday (had a 11 hour drive home) and felt like I needed a break after the heavy leg incident on Wednesday. I felt better today but still not 100%. I’ve been frustrated lately over my slow pace so I intentionally pushed a little harder when I started today. I was hoping to run 8 – 10 miles but was just didn’t feel the best and the head wind on the way back didn’t help. So I ran my normal 6.2 with an average pace of 7:27. Not the greatest pace but much better than where I have been. I stopped at 6.2 because I wanted to leave a little gas in the tank in case I decide to go for a run later today (Afternoon edit – yep, I did 5 miles around St. Mary’s City). Tamara and I also have Warrior Dash tomorrow which should be fun. I feel a little like we are on some sort of running tour with an event almost every weekend but we are having a great time!
Unrelated note: Thanks to Dad for his exceptional grounds keeping of the house while I was away. He cut my grass and washed my car which gave me time to run today!!! Thanks Dad!
