This morning I headed out the door at 6am to do a 7.5 mile run - at marathon tempo pace. Let me just say.....IT SUCKED! I was just barely awake, so I gave myself 1 mile to warm up before cranking out 7:06 - 7:35 minute miles the entire way. It felt great, but hard. I guess that's exactly how it's supposed to feel ;) Early morning running makes me feel alive, and like I'm doing some secret thing while everybody else is still asleep - especially in my neighboorhood. I think I saw maybe 2 surfers, and a few walkers along the cliffs. Off to CrossFit for a workout..I'll post that next!
