Slow 6.5 miles this morning. Trying (mostly) to keep my pace to 1 and a half to 2 minutes below marathon pace…. That’s REALLY slow. So slow I can catch a picture of my shadow while still running, without blur of any type. Slow. I don’t like running this slow. I feel like a petulant child wanting faster, wanting intervals, wanting tempo…. Now. Taper does not suit me. I will do it correctly though, just whining all the way through.
I do run in a very beautiful place though. Those are the San Juan islands you’re looking at across Bellingham Bay.
