Maybe it was because it was first thing in the morning, or because I just fell out the door without eating anything before hand, or that it was a balmy 11 degrees after being -5 all day yesterday, but the run this morning felt, well, crappy. Heart Rate was higher than usual and legs felt heavy, but the gait felt smooth. I know that some people feel that if they are a little off, or a tinge of sickness, they race better - I am hoping this is the case.
If you are in Victoria, you should really check out the Marathoning Forum tonight at Frontrunners at 7:00pm, brought to you by the boys at Three Roads to London. It will be interesting, insightful, and filled with humour. Bring a $2 donation for Shoes for Youth and enjoy the night.
