I am saying goodbye to the daily run now. Two reasons really. I've taken a few days off over the holiday and I've started a training plan toward running a half marathon at the Seattle Marathon this fall. The new plan has me running to target distances with occasional instructions to take a hilly route or to run intervals or make a tempo run. You'll see how I'm doing here.
Today's run came after too many days off. Legs felt like rubber. I picked a route that was mostly up hill, definitely hilly. I finished my distance when I was still quite a way from my starting point. Thus I added a short semi-sprint at hte end. It felt like a sprint but the pace shows me I was well worn by then.
All in all, it felt good to be running again.
