  • Everything about this workout seemed off. My legs felt heavy. My head hurt. I had zero energy. I was just simply lackluster in every way.
  • It could have been jet lag. It could have been that I was supposed to run a race this morning, but discovered that it was a scam. How bizzarre is that? I ran the race last year, but it must have gone out of business some time after I registered. I suppose that is the risk when signing up for the early bird rate.

Yesterday's run looked super tough. So that explains a lot of why you feel today's performance was off. You did finish the goal for today, so that's good.

What race was cancelled? That is really disappointing!

The race was The Great Chocolate Race Series. It offered a 10 mile and a 5K. I ran the 10 mile race last year. I really enjoyed the distance so I thought that I would run it again this year. I guess the lure of chocolate at the end of a race is not a large enough incentive to sustain a race series.
