Work and my other hobby, umpiring Little League Baseball, have severely chewed into my running this week. I was set to do 5 this morning and only vaguely recall turing off the alarm at 5:15 this morning...next thing I knew, it was 6:30 and a full day awaited. Tonight I umpired and then have to speak to a local quality management group early tomorrow morning.
Blah, blah, blah, except I'm signed up to do a 10K race on Saturday. I was hoping to improve on my last 10K from last October. I suppose that is still possible but my surprise "taper" is not what I had planned. I'm still trying to put the base down for the Portland Marathon on October 1.
We'll see. And I will persevere.
