After seeing how far behind last year I am relatively speaking, I think I psyched myself up — this morning’s 10k turned into a 12k. Not a terrible time, either. Getting back to a good 10k time means doing a lot of mediocre 12s.
The one big problem is time — it takes about 90 minutes all in to do this, when I count the time it takes to get ready and out the door. That’s a … chunk of time. I’m not sorry to be spending it, but it does compress the rest of my morning a lot.
A bit rushed this morning as a result. No checklist yesterday, but still doing okay with food/exercise, and my good sleep streak continues.
