Today was an easy run, 9.7 KM / 6 Miles in 52:49, average pace 05:27 min/KM (08:47 min/Mile), followed by some ab work and 15 laps in the pool (750 mts / 820 yrds).
Easy runs stress me a little, I always feel like I’m not making enough of an effort. Which of course is true, but there’s a purpose to easy runs, I know. And I am capable of enjoying the easier pace.
After the weekend’s HIIT run and long run, an easy run was definitely what my body needed. I mean, if that pace didn’t feel too slow on my legs (and it didn’t), it only means I needed the “rest”. And real rest day tomorrow (or rest days, actually), well, kind of, so yey.
I’m flying to New York today.
Looking forward to the plane ride, yes, 12 hours on a plane are actually somehow enjoyable for me.
Looking forward to the change of scenery, to spending a few days in one of the most amazing cities of the world.
Looking forward to some shopping.
Looking forward to great food. I’m a simple girl, raisin bagels with loads of cream cheese are on the top of my list, some pizza, some good soups. Lots of coffee to keep me warm and awake.
I don’t think I’ll be able to run in NY, which bums me, it’s supposed to be really cold this week… maybe in the hotel treadmill if I can make the time for it.
