Procrastinating

I’m sitting in the car in the parking lot at Friedrich Park finishing off the last of my coffee. I’ve got five mile-repeats scheduled and I’m not all that excited to get them done. Tell me to run 40 miles instead and I’d be happy as a lark. Mile repeats just paralyze me.
I’m teaching up in Wimberley this weekend on the Blanco River. Texas State has an old camp out there. It’s lovely — and also full of chiggers, fire ants, scorpions, and bull nettle in the summer. Great place to teach Wilderness Medicine. Lots of teachable moments. It won’t be quite as exciting this time of year, but we should be able to have some good hypothermia fun in the river. I’ll post pictures.
I’d better haul myself out of the car now. Groan.

    It’s good to know that even you have those thoughts about mile repeats vs. a long run. Thankfully, today, I get to choose between 4x 1-mile “cruise” (6:19’s) intervals and hill sprints. 6:19 is considered “cruise”? Really? I’m doing the 5k pace hill repeats, instead. Of course, I’d rather do a long run if I was choosing. :0)

      I don’t know which is more deflating: thinking of 6:17 as a cruise pace or looking down at your Garmin and seeing “FAST JOG” on the screen during interval training. That was me today. I’ve got to get rid of that Garmin judgement display — though it is satisfying when it decides I’m moving at a “SLOW RUN.”
