That's what today's run was.
I was bored with my 11 miler around the block. So I mapped out a new location, it was about 9 miles, but I was hoping it would hit with a good descent in a valley.
A "Blah" run. I don't have many of these. I drank some orange juice with my breakfast, right before my run. It burned and irritated me on the entire run.
The back roads I chose weren't that interesting or that epic. A slow descent to a valley, a short climb up, and then, meh, boringness.
I didn't have the energy either. I haven't gotten that much decent sleep since the Alice pup has arrived. I believe my longest sleep has been about 7 hours. I am hoping to improve on that in the 11 days before Massanutten. And hopefully sooner than that.
So, sometimes a run is just a run. I am running a marathon on Saturday, it may well turn into my last long run before Massanutten.. I meant to get more long runs in the month of April, but the new mantra I have found is true: " Train as much as you can consistently train."
