I should really remember to check the weather before I get dressed for my runs.
I was all bundled up, stepped outside and just KNEW I was going to get super hot on my run. Of course I didn't go back inside and change, that would be silly.
Instead I got in the car and wished I had my phone so I could call and cancel our run with Amy. But I knew I would regret not doing my scheduled run and I'm not even sure why I was having such a hard time getting the motivation up to go running.
It wasn't super early...only 8:30am
It wasn't super cold...like 40 degrees
It wasn't even raining!
My goal pace was 7:45 per mile (7 mile Long Tempo) and my actual pace was 7:33 but it was harsh. If I had been running alone, IF I had even drug myself outside to run, it would have been cut short and I would have walked some of it.
Not because I COULDN'T run be just because I didn't really WANT to run.
What makes a good running partner?
1. similar pace (Amy is faster but we're choosing to ignore that)
2 same training schedule
3. When one is whiny the other has to tell them to "suck it up".
Saturday we took turns on #3.
But we got the run done, we didn't get rained on and we had company too!
