Well, I'm feeling sleepy today.
Yesterday's training plans were dropped due to another movie-viewing decision. My plan was to do another round of Hill Repeats after work. But then I remembered that Wehrenberg Theaters have been replaying some of the summer blockbusters for only $1 per ticket. Today was the last day and I hadn't taken advantage of the promotion yet so I convinced Liz we should go see a $1 movie last night. So, instead of an evening run, Liz and I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides for two dollars. The movie was better than I expected (I had low expectations) and it was definitely worth the price!
So no workout yesterday and then I slept later than I planned this morning. I didn't have time to run the full 10 miles that my schedule calls for but I made myself get out the door to get something in.
From the very beginning, my legs felt sluggish and I felt tired. It was a cool morning and my legs just felt stiff and unresponsive. Not only was I running a shorter distance than planned, but I had to settle for a slower pace because I just wasn't able to get my mind or body going this morning.
They can't all be good runs.

Notes: 6 miles of sleep-running. This was the first day this year that I didn't enjoy the cooler weather. I'll still take it over the heat, and most days I Love it. But today it just added to the urge to crawl back in bed. At least I got some miles in even if they weren't what I'm looking for.
