Noon run, mostly cloudy, temp. 63'

Since I didn't run yesterday I thought I'd be feeling good.  Instead there was no zip, no zing, I just felt like an old man.  This is closing week were I work more and have to actually think at my job and my brain gets to tired to send the signals to run hard.  Anyway I decide to to a couple of fast quarters.  The 1st one was uphill and I went very hard and got 80 seconds, the 2nd was 3/4 mile later and was down hill and I got a disappointing 75 seconds.  I couldn't get myself to run.  The next gear was gone.  I old maned it a few more miles got a run in.

Time 71:36,  Mile avg. - 7:58

Terry you were probably due a bad day or 2 what with the hard/long runs early in the week and the mental strain from work.

I hadn't heard the phrase "old maned it" before. I may borrow that description for some of my runs when I feel my age a bit more than usual.
