It was the annual jingle run that Runner’s Nook places on annually!

It’s all the time good to meet up with pals I haven’t seen in months as we run up the canyon.

My physique is so used to taking a break day from operating after the long term, so that’s one difficult half about doing lengthy runs on Friday… I’ve to complete up my mileage for the week on Saturday.

We had a Christmas celebration at church.

Beck might at the moment stay off of Core Energy, banana, peanut butter smoothies.

The children allow us to sleep in on Sunday morning till 8:30.  I hit 70.5 miles final week, and a stable night time of sleep was essential.

Only a regular Sunday.

These two have certain been bonding these days…

I completed Night time Highway.  Each time I end a guide by Kristin Hannah, I feel, ‘That is my new favourite certainly one of hers.’  The story was heartbreaking however so lovely.  I already need to reread it.  Which Kristin Hannah guide ought to I learn subsequent?  To date, I’ve learn Nightengale, 4 Winds, The Nice Alone, and Night time Highway.

Additionally, vacation sweet > regular sweet.

We misplaced depend of what number of motion pictures we watched on Sunday.  Brooke wasn’t feeling properly, so a Christmas film marathon was the very best medication.

And now for right now’s random matter of the day:

This text!  It talks about why doing velocity work/operating feels tougher at the hours of darkness than within the gentle.  Final Friday, after we did our velocity exercise, the primary set (at a 6:32 common) felt tougher than the previous couple of miles of the 2nd set (6:14 common) as a result of the primary set was at the hours of darkness (PITCH darkish.. there weren’t even vehicles or avenue lights for almost all of it) and the previous couple of miles (when my legs ought to have been extra drained) felt simpler as a result of it was gentle out by then.  It’s not simply you… it’s confirmed!

Operating at the hours of darkness makes it tougher to evaluate your velocity primarily based on objects round you.   It’s additionally tougher to get distracted within the darkness by your environment, so it’s simply you and your mind, making your perceived effort appear tougher than the identical tempo might really feel within the gentle.

There’s a motive the professionals normally run in daylight; operating in darkness doesn’t support in efficiency, however…

Doing velocity at the hours of darkness will make race day really feel a lot simpler:)
