Today I ran to the bridge twice (7+7) - once in the morning and again in the evening. I don’t think I’ve ever done that before. This wasn’t something I had planned. I was actually pretty tired after the first run. It was one of those runs that felt like it took forever to complete. But, Hilary seemed pretty excited to go for a run when she got home this evening so I figured I’d go with her and see if I could draft off of her energy. I was very slow for the first half of the run, but then felt pretty good on the return. My body was pretty tired out so I took the opportunity to really focus on my form to carry me along. This is something I’ve been trying to do a lot towards then end of my runs as I begin to tire. It seems that good form can carry you a long way and it also seems to make the run more enjoyable rather than shuffling along through the drudge of fatigue.
The double was a fun challenge. Maybe I’ll work it into the mix a little more often.
Maybe a double Brown Mtn ride sometime, too.
Now we’re eating a giant pizza!
