Random story, while I was washing my hands when I had arrived this little boy was recruiting me hard to play dodge ball, I barely escaped the effort but felt Adam Sandler set up the interaction.

Another random thought, running 6:30s at 5am takes a lot more effort than my Sunday runs where I have more time to warm up and coffee. I've hit 6:15-6:30s in long runs just being in a groove and throw on the breaks knowing that is a really bad speed to be doing before the last mile. But ask me to do that when I wake up? And I'll respond, girl you crazy. Slightly aggravating.
Anyways, should I stick with slightly slower intervals or push it again? Ideas why good intervals knock my calf out just about every time?
The run today was fine. First four intervals went smooth. I got a high five from a professional, some people beat me to the wave today, and I had one runner finally wave back after about 5 different attempts. Going south also felt like I was in a gnat party.
Going north, I didn't noticed the gnats, but my stomach instantly started churning. Maybe there was a change in breathing with the wind in my face. The wind was enough to knock me off a little as well. I made the most of it and finished with a smile.
Two shout outs today to non runners. The first is this older Asian lady that walks around one of the soccer fields and hits golf balls. I thought that was pretty cool ( only if she picked them up after!). The second is a slightly older lady who I've seen before walking her little dog in a stroller, but today she was jogging with the dog on a leash and pushing the empty stroller. That was EPIC.
One last thought, nice thing about all this outdoor running, people think you went on vacation from how dark you've gotten.
Have a great day!
