This morning I went out for a run and I decided not to look at my phone but just to run intuitively to see where I’m at physically. I ran a five mile progression run gradually upping my speed with each mile based on how I felt without looking at my phone or Garmin and I nailed it! The best part of the entire run was how comfortable it felt because at the very end I kicked it up a bit and I hit the 7’s, the high 7’s of course, but the 7’s.
When I got back, MacGyver asked me how my run was and I said, “great, I ran a five mile progression run, intuitively, and I hit a high 7:50ish pace in the last mile, and it felt totally comfortable!’ I was a little excited.
And then MacGyver said, ”Well if it was so easy, why didn’t you push a little harder, maybe you would’ve hit the 6’s”
MacGyver obviously doesn’t run and I need to try a little harder all right, just not at running!
WTF? It’s Wednesday….
