Shame on me

Overslept this morning (alarm time had been changed) so I missed the group run.  Been grumpy ever since.  There are only two things that really make me grumpy anymore.  The first is when I have to travel and can’t be with my family.  The second is missing my group runs for ANY reason. Even though I usually end up running alone anyway due to the odd pace I’m running right now, I still love group runs.  Running alone doesn’t hold the magic it used to.

So I decided to punish/reward myself for my indiscretion this afternoon by running my longest run so far this year.  I’m going to run from my work to my house.  The route I have chosen is just a hair over 14 miles.  This is a big run for me.  The longest one since my marathon last year.  There are several big hills on the route, which should be a challenge.  I plan on running smooth and easy.  I will keep an overall time but will mostly just monitor my breathing.  If I start wheezing (more than normal) I’ll back off.  The goal here is to run the miles.  I could care less how long it takes.  I’m not training for anything except my next run.
