"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009
Now that was a bath...
Mine is definitely sleep. Haven't slept well the last few nights (numerous factors, including &*^%^#%$#% cats) and today's run was just yucko. Felt stiff, no energy. Only was out for 45 minutes, but it felt like hours. Sucked, because the weather was actually quite nice, too (not a cloud in the sky, no wind, 35º) and I really could have enjoyed a leisurely run on a pretty morning.
Whenever I don't sleep well I have miserable runs. Always.
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire
