Hefner Tempo Run

This is a few days late but I absolutely wanted to get this one out. I actually ran in the morning! It was dark and quiet and yet I ran great even without an Ipod. This was supposed to be a 6 mile temo (1 easy, 4 hard, 1 easy) but I decided I would just do a lap of the lake and throw in some surges to get the temo. I'd just take the extra 3 miles for a cooldown.

I ended up running most of the loop at a pretty good clip. The used the dam road for the tempo portion since I HATE the damn dam road and wanted to get it over with quickly.

This was a great run but I paid for it all day. I was one tired Willie for the rest of the day. As for all you morning runners who say it invigorates you and gets you started and alert for your day... I say that's CRAP! I was beat! I struggled through the rest of my day. I poured coffee into ever orifice I could (not really) and it didn't help. I know I have to start doing this morning run thing but my body is determined to fight me all the way.

Thanks for listening
