My running has not been so great lately. I tried to think back and recall what worked for me when I was feeling better and one thing I did was spend a bit more time on the treadmill. As lame as that sounds to some people (me included usually), if you have not done something for along time - even if it's boring - you can usually do it again.
I think the treadmill is easier on my body and it lets me run at a faster and more controlled pace. So I gave it a shot this morning. After a somewhat sluggish start my body warmed up and it felt pretty good! I think today it was the right choice.
It was anther fabulous day so I took the long way home. That was not bad either.
On the way home I ran into Ryan Dean and we chatted for a good 10 minutes on 1st Ave. More cheap therapy.
