|Still smiling on day 2!|
But, given the fact that I have evening meetings most nights of the week, morning running it is!
This morning's run was better than yesterday's run. I paced myself better, and felt generally stronger during both the first half of the run and especially the last quarter mile or so. I still gave up and walked a short time, so I need to keep working on my stamina.
Part of the problem, I think, is that while I picked an easy there-and-back route, along familiar road that has a great biking/walking path running alongside...it is also a route that is downhill all the way from home to my turnaround point, and then uphill all the way back. So the front half of my run always feels easier than it should, and the back half feels harder than it should. But this, too, should get better with time and practice.
