I was going to take this morning off, but an easy run is better than no run.  Ran the Turkey Trot loop and felt good about it.  Actually, about two thirds of the way through the route I pass by my house, I thought about just calling it a good week and going home.  I had to think of a distraction in my head to get me past that point.  "Wake up Lachy" by The Wiggles is what popped into my head especially since it has a good tempo.  I only know the chorus though and so that is what recycled continuously in a loop through my head.

32:16.69

And now I can call it a good week.

Felt like the hardest run ever.  Woke up at 0230 to give my body time to wake up.  Hit the road at 0255 with an expected time of about 50 to 55 minutes.  It took a little longer.  Slow jog all the way to knock off those last few pounds before the weigh in.  I don't know if I will continue to have this luxury of time before a weigh in.  Felt good to finish even though I'm sure there are walkers out there who can complete the route a lot faster.

Didn't really feel like running but ran anyway.  Jogged anyway.  Out to the hotel and two times around the pond then back.

Felt like I could've pushed it a little bit but held back.  I'll make that push on Saturday over the 5K route.

About a mile and a half.  We did a couple of sprints in the sand.  It is amazing how fast you feel once you hit the pavement after having run in the sand.

Judgement day is fast approaching.  As always, it comes sooner rather than later.  This one is gonna be close.

Jogged out and looped around the pond twice.  Looked like some young runners were out on the trail today.  They were just oozing speed.  I just kept chugging along.

Felt good running but I might pay for this in the morning.  We'll see.

Easy pace this morning.  I was surprised by a whole group of runners out on the trail besides me.
