After another terrible day at work, I went out to the Capital Crescent Trail and on a whim decided to run a workout (sorry PR - I lied both to you and myself!). I decided to run 2 x 2-mile at half marathon pace. Really, I just wanted to get my run over with and get out of Dodge. I ran my first 2 miles in 10:22 then ran a mile and a half before running back up the CCT. I labored north and began to huff and puff like a big bad wolf. I felt like a chain smoker, but why? I finished up in 10:45. This wasn't meant to be much of a workout, but I did want to remind my legs what pace was like. Obviously, it wasn't all out, but still I should be able to run workouts like this comfortably. A month ago while totally conscious and lucid running down Broad Street in Philly, I felt as if I could run 5:20s until the cows came home. This certainly didn't seem the case today.
