Thermopylaehillbilly. And they wouldn't lie about something like that.
I had a great run yesterday. I ran about 7.5 miles at a decent pace. It felt really, really good. It was a great way to start off the first day of classes.
So, after running 25 miles the first three days of the week, I could definitely have taken today off. I didn't for three reasons. (1) I'm still feeling guilty about skipping the first three days of the month. If I had skipped today, I would have been back down to less than 50% of the days in September. (2) Today was the second day of classes, and my first day meeting my MWF classes. I didn't want to face them without my daily exercise. (3) We are in the middle of a spell of wonderful weather. It's been about 10 degrees Celsius in the morning, and dry. We don't have that many perfect running days here in Wisconsin. I didn't want to miss one.
