15 at 6:20am. weird run. i woke up better than normal for 4:45am so i had much less coffee than normal post-shakeout, and the next 45 minutes it’s like my mind was in a fog. i partially remember driving to sandy, i was dozing off a little at the wheel which really isn’t like me. i got to the start of sandy and i remember thinking “if i sit in this car without moving i’ll be asleep in 15 seconds max” so i got out and began the run. for the first few miles it felt like i was just on cruise control(slow cruise) and couldn’t focus my mind at all; normally i’m thinking about a lot on these runs but i swore i didn’t think anything besides the occasional “what’s wrong with me, why can’t i focus?” but by about 5 miles in the killer hill brought me back. watch was almost dead so i stopped tracking at the turnaround and just made a mental note of the time, came back about 5 minutes faster. very slow because of the first half, i’d be secretly disappointed but with 1k left i felt good and was already running fast because dogs were barking behind me, so i just sustained the pace, making another mental note of when i hit the “half-mile to go” mark, ran that under 3 minutes. felt good, moral of this story is always drink more coffee than you think you should
12 at 7:00pm. felt pretty good. on days i don’t work i’m gonna try to split my sleeping into two 3-4 hour periods, so i slept 2-5pm, so i’d contribute the feeling of goodness to that.
