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

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

My physique is so used to taking a day without work 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 social gathering at church.

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

The youngsters allow us to sleep in on Sunday morning till 8:30.  I hit 70.5 miles final week, and a strong evening of sleep was needed.

Only a regular Sunday.

These two have positive been bonding these days…

I completed Night time Highway.  At any time when I end a guide by Kristin Hannah, I feel, ‘That is my new favourite one among hers.’  The story was heartbreaking however so stunning.  I already wish to reread it.  Which Kristin Hannah guide ought to I learn subsequent?  Thus far, I’ve learn Nightengale, 4 Winds, The Nice Alone, and Night time Highway.

Additionally, vacation sweet > regular sweet.

And now for at the moment’s random matter of the day:

This text!  It talks about why doing velocity work/operating feels more durable at nighttime than within the mild.  Final Friday, once we did our velocity exercise, the primary set (at a 6:32 common) felt more durable than the previous couple of miles of the 2nd set (6:14 common) as a result of the primary set was at nighttime (PITCH darkish.. there weren’t even vehicles or road 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 mild out by then.  It’s not simply you… it’s confirmed!

Operating at nighttime makes it more durable to guage your velocity based mostly 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 more durable than the identical tempo could really feel within the mild.

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