This morning I headed out for my usual Thursday tempo run and it was dark. Like pitch black dark, can't see your hand in front of your face dark.
Thank goodness for the tiny half moon that was shining, otherwise it would have been a really long dark run. The only thing I really worry about during these dark runs is falling and/or stepping in a whole and twisting my ankle. Although I have had my fair share of falls, thankfully I haven't fallen recently.
As I was running my warm up mile, I noticed that I could once again see Orion's belt in the dark sky.
This is always a sign to me that we are officially entering the end of summer :( The mornings are getting cooler and the days are getting shorter. It always seems like summer goes by to fast.
Morning workout -
2x2 mile at threshold (~7:10 pace)
My legs did not want to go this morning - holding a 7:19 pace for the first 2 miles was tough and then a 7:16 for the second set was even harder. This kind of makes me worry about the 15k coming up because I wanted to hold my tempo/threshold pace for that race. We will see - there is till 18 days before the race.
In other news - I have my wedding hair and make up trail tomorrow and then my final dress fitting. I am very excited about this. I have a hair style picked out and I can't wait to see how it looks with my dress and make up and jewelry!
Married ladies - how did you decide on your wedding day look??
Thank goodness it is THURSDAY!! Have a great one!
