Thursday Running Times

My legs still felt slow and heavy but I needed to run.  I had planned for 24 miles on Sunday and there was no way that was going to happen if I didn't run during the week. So I gathered up my energy and headed out for the greenway.  I hooked up to the Lake Trail (Crabtree park) and looped back to get 9.4 miles at the incredibly slow pace of 13:30 min/mile.  By the time I got back on the greenway, the sun was setting and I had to get off the dark trails (otherwise I step on a frog or a snake!).  I ended up taking an exit of the trails towards what I thought was my neighborhood but was actually the ritzy neighborhood adjacent and then going in the wrong direction. I finally realized that I should check out a map on my phone and turned out around and got back home okay. 

This puts me at 57 miles of running since September 1st, my goal was to get to 100 miles accumulated by September 16th but that does not look like it's going to happen. I got a sore throat and was feeling tired Friday and Saturday and just trying to recover for our long run on Sunday. It was too ambitious but I am glad I tried!
