I met up with Ian, Mindy, Chuck, Danielle, Ryan, Kevin, Blaine, Jeff and Scott today up in Brunswick for a trail run. Very technical trails that would normally have been a lot of fun, but unfortunately, I just didn't have the energy today. At first I thought I felt a bit lagging because I hadn't run on rugged trails like this in a while and I was also in some fast company, but it soon became apparent that the real problem was I was simply running out of gas. My plans to try at least 20 miles today were definitely quite overly ambitious.
Not a big deal, despite what the picture above might imply. I don't think it's anything other than I just need to still fill up the gas tank a bit more after being sick and my weight is still down. Rest, eat right, and continue running easy and with caution is on order for the next several days.
Despite not having the pep that I would have liked, it was still a fun run. Ian, Jeff and I warmed ourselves up a little with some Tim Horton's coffee and breakfast sandwiches afterwards. Long live Tim Horton's.
Ran 9.2 miles @ 9:33/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 149/167
Lower 20s, mostly cloudy, windy.
Long pants, fleece jacket, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
