Day 87. Same Distance, Different Results. Why?

Getting up earlier and earlier these days means it’s getting darker and darker in the morning. Don’t get me wrong … I’m not strapping on the ole’ miner’s hat and heading to the man-made elevator. I’m just saying I know Summer is officially over and Fall is officially here.

That Fall weather doesn’t keep for the entire day so morning runs are the best option for now. My advice … run in the early morning. You’ll feel stronger and more powerful versus attempting any physical activity after eating a typical breakfast, atypical lunch, and an outrageous dinner. I’m sure there’s science behind it, but I’m talking real-world experience.

Life lesson #87 – Seasons change and we need to change along with them. Don’t get caught wearing a parka in the dead of Summer, that’s all I’m saying.

Morning weight 172. Post run weight 170.

Food and Exercise

Today’s Activities:

  • Runkeeper is like Simon … I do exactly what it says. Today is a 6 mile slow/fast. 1st mile slow. Miles 2-5 fast. Last and 6th mile slow. Finished at a pace fo 9:14 which is off my pace just 2 days ago which only emphasizes my earlier point that I tend to thrive with other runners around. Definitely helps with pacing and pulling towards the finish.
  • Also watched the press screening of Riddick … Give it an A.
