A nice easy pace 5k this morning. This is the first time I have run pre-dawn in far too long. It is my first step at getting back to my normal morning routine of running after falling away from it during my abbreviated running schedule brought on by injury.
It wasn't as difficult to get up as I expected, even though I went to bed too late, but it still wasn't easy. I had everything laid out and ready last night so it was just the mental battle I had to deal with.
The first mile was like every other first mile, but then I got into the groove and the next 2.1 miles just zoomed by.
Give me all the encouragement you got - I need lots of it!!
