Small Predicament

Yesterday I did a 4 mile tempo run at the gym. This was my first ever tempo run, and I did a mile at 5.5, two at 6.0, and another at 5.5. I know these aren't blow you away fast times, but for me, running more than a mile at anything above 5.5 is a big win. I might have sweat a little.

I think I've mentioned it before, but my face turns beet red anytime I work up a sweat. Super attractive, I know. Does this happen to anyone else?

After the gym I ran home to shower immediately went on a secret mission. I'll share later today, when I have lots of pics! Then I actually did shower, and had to head to work for about an hour and a half for my yearly evaluation (yikes! stuff like this stressesmeoutsomuch!) But it went really well, and I'm glad it's over. I don't know why I let stuff like that stress me out, but oh well.

So back to my predicament. I was supposed to do my tempo run on Wednesday, but I worked 12 hours on Wed and Thurs (I don't usually run when I have to work a 12 hour shift). So I pushed it to Friday. Today is supposed to be my long run. Do I do it today? I'm thinking yes. What do you think?

Does it bother you when you don't follow your training plan exactly? Yes but it's something I'm working on this time around!

Do work evaluations stress you out too?


  1. 10 min miles are fast!!! Thats a fast pace for me right now too :-) Don't underestimate yourself.
